50 Ligabue Magazines in 50 weeks
Download your free digital version every week
Almost 40 years have passed since the first issue of the Ligabue Magazine. Look backing at the contents page and seeing alongside the title of the magazine "Year 1, Number 1, October 1982", is still a thrilling experience and sets us thinking back over all those years and the issues published. It conjures up the meetings ahead of the publication of each article, talks, discussions, decisions and a sense of apprehension that preceded every deadline.
All that work carried out during what was arguably the most exciting and prolific decade for the Ligabue Research Centre's scientific activities brought great satisfaction. Now in 2020, a year of profound changes in the way culture and knowledge are disseminated, we have decided to make all that work available to our readers and anyone else interested, free of charge.
The topics in the first 25 years of publication were incredibly wide-ranging: Venice, its history, traditions and fascinating lesser-known aspects; remote peoples, scattered and hidden in often inaccessible places; archaeological treasures; ground-breaking discoveries; and journeys on all the continents through the often unspoilt nature of wonderful places on our planet. The articles penned by great experts and journalists were illustrated with splendid images by great photographers or reporters.
If you’d like to re-explore with us many of the fundamental stages of our history, follow the instructions on this page and for a year you will get the chance to travel all over the world without leaving home. We look forward to seeing you in the Reserved Area!
