Featured articles

The Contagious Oceans of Thor Heyerdahl. Fifty years have gone by, the year was 1969, two men landed on the moon. The Earth, also thanks to the enterprises of the anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl, was still a place capable of inspiring great intellectual challenges and great sea explorations.

Salt. The Memory of Water. It is in our body as it is in the ocean. It is the footprint that the sea has left in our life.

Dan Costa. The Atlantic of the Sun that Sets. Dizzying cliffs, endless beaches, the ocean at the height of its power. Secret places to go to on the right days. For surfer and shaper Dan Costa the Alentejo is not just a territory, it’s a lifestyle.

Twenty-one Stripes on Your Back. More than a fabric, it’s a state of mind. Something to do with wind and sea that you need every so often to escape from the daily grind. 

Looking for Whales. Knowing the history of sperm whales and humpbacks can tell us a lot about their future and a little bit about ours. 

 Above the Eyes. Below the Water. Archipelago of Wakatobi, Banda Sea. To make the passage from top to bottom, from air to water even more fluid, the Bajau wear spartan eyeglasses in wood and glass. Preserving their craft is an old master in a pile dwelling in the village of Sampela.

The Long Way Around the Americas. No goals or limits. Only a driving need to sail the open sea aboard Lady Free, a wooden pilot cutter, and to discover some of the most remote places on the planet.

The Last Pilot Book. An ancient way to come close to land, to read the Mediterranean, and perhaps to move in time and not just in space.

Tomoka Fukuda. The ocean is in no hurry. If your destiny is to connect with the briny depths, it doesn’t have to happen within a certain age or a particular period of life – just at the right time. That’s how it went for freediving champion, Tomoka Fukuda, one of only five women to have dived below 100 meters.

Pantelleria. The Daughter of the Wind. No source, no torrent, few outlets to the sea. The volcano is not fond of them. At Pantelleria water is something far away. Something distant. Metaphysical. Elusive. Or hidden.

 

That’s just a preview.

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, got a nomination at the 2016 ADCE* Awards in Barcelona and was among the Medal Finalists of SPD #52 in NY.

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.
