Issue 9 Featured articles

Kino’s Long Wave. An outrigger sailing canoe, a sea school and a young Hawaiian who dreams about the ocean of his forebears 

Point Nemo. Even before being a geographical place, the oceanic pole of inaccessibility – the place at sea furthermost from any land-mass – is an absolute that attracts us and pushes us to go offshore above all in search of ourselves

Valerie’s Blue World. The ocean of the 60s / 70s was a mysterious and unknown place. Under the surface of the water, a universe was waiting to be explored, where Valerie and Ron Taylor were pioneers, whose dives and documentaries knew no boundaries

Passengers at Dawn. A ship, an archipelago made up of volcanoes and a slow journey in which the destination surprises you, suddenly

Mike & Joey swimming Na Pali Coast. A place of dangerous beauty, faced with brazen simplicity. Seventeen miles of Pacific Ocean beneath lava cliffs a hundred metres high. One stroke after the other, becoming part of the water you’re swimming in

The Women of Jeju Island. Every day they dive into the sea for hours, regardless of the season, to gather algae and shellfish. This practice has continued for centuries off the coast of South Korea. The Haenyeo are women who choose a dangerous calling rather than conform to mainland customs

Soul Surfers. A group of friends, but also another way to face the waves and life. In Japan

The School Where Boats Are Reborn. To build a boat is a complex and timeless act. The root of each step – and, above all, the emotion that drives it – is ancient, even when the technology used is modern. At Newport, the International Yacht Restoration School represents a point where these skills, suspended between the past and the future, are carefully handed down

In Waves. Surfing like a passionate love letter, like a cure for pain, like a way to fix one’s memories

Two Mermaids in the Sea of Malta. Moving in the sea, naked. As if in utero. As if land were an inevitable necessity, yet knowing that water is our natural state. 

 

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.
