Sirene # 4

Out December 7th

The water and even more so the air have turned cold while big grey rain-laden clouds race towards land. The beaches are now deserted and the few who remain recognize one another even before knowing who they are.

The thin line that divides those who love the sea from the rest of the world lies behind us.

Water and Paper


Sirene is water, Sirene is paper

Water and Paper


Sirene is water, Sirene is paper

 

Sirene is a new magazine tailored for those people who feel close to the sea even when they are far away from it. 

Large recycled paper pages, rough and porous as only salt water stains can be, large white spaces, pure as a sea horizon, and page-turner stories that will put you on the same wave-length with a surging community looking at the oceans as the intersection of the planet’s destinies. 

Our paper is made from algae, to make use of excess algal blooms from lagoons at risk. For every half kilo of fresh algae, a kilo of wood is saved. The entire productive process has been scrupulously thought out to attain minimal environmental impact.

Passion


Sirene Is Passion

Passion


Sirene Is Passion

 

Surfing, freediving, stretches of ocean in the words of a solo sailor, islands, beaches to discover, customs and traditions of beach culture, stories of secret ferries, lost classic boats, whale sharks routes, reportings related to pollution and protection of marine life, create a narration in which sea lovers can relate and where they can find the characteristics of a common identity. Unlike other media dealing with sea sports and activities, Sirenes's approach is never technical but always emotional.

Sirene has been awarded a Graphite Pencil at the 2016 D&AD Awards in London and got a nomination at the 2016 ADCE* Awards in Barcelona.

Sirene Is Where You Are

 

Two different versions – one in Italian and one in English – and two cradles, the Mediterranean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, where the attraction for water has grown in time into a culture.

Starting from Italy and California, through its webpage sirenejournal.com and carefully selected points of sale, SIRENE wants to spread and develop along the Mediterranean coast and the dry lands in the Pacific area until it reaches its readers wherever they are in the world.
