Piergiorgio Del Moro and Samuel Ellis Scheinman were the casting directors for the issue where they cast various top names from the modelling industry and actors such as Bethann Hardison, Indya Moore, Denali White Elk, Giannie Couji, Ugbad Abdi, Xiao Wen Ju, Kaia Gerber, Cameron Russell, Irina Shayk, Ajani, Precious Lee, Emily Miller, Anisa Dagher, Talia Ryder, Chippewajane, Cindy Crawford, Alek Wek, Donna Jordan, Ash Foo, Lexi Boling, Raquel Zimmermann, Varsha Thapa, Binx Walton, Beatrice Galilee, Adesuwa Aighewi, Vineeta Kumari Seshasai, Kai Avent deLeon, Benzo, Abby Champion, Ariel Nicholson, Dominique Duroseau, Pat Cleveland, Tschabalala Self, Soo Joo Park, Akon Adichol, Munaiya B, Julia Nobis, Meghan Collison, Gray Sorrenti, and Bella Hadid to name a few. They also featured people with interesting stories, talented people in the most diverse fields, icons of the past, and people who have nothing to do with fashion, of all ages for the front-page images.
“At times like these human beings can do one of two things: shut up or shout. Last April, when we decided to leave our cover white, we were convinced that silence was the right message of respect and reserve” says Vogue Italia’s Editor-in-Chief Emanuele Farneti. “Now, instead, with the onset of a new season that will in many ways be crucial, we think this is the moment to raise our voices and talk about hope and beauty. For the first time, we have shot and printed 100 covers. Each of them is dedicated to an individual protagonist. It is the portrait of a community that, having waited diligently, now finds itself making a fresh start”.
The creative director Ferdinando Verderi, who conceived the project, explains the process: “Almost a performance lasting days, with its succession of photo shoots and its artistic essentiality. The idea is very simple: more is more.” tells Verderi. “A challenge to the canons of quantity with which fashion has always measured itself. A celebration of diversity and uniqueness, a desire for rebirth that, once printed, becomes a collective experience. We shot the 100 cover stars individually in a simple studio in NY with Mark Borthwick, the historic Vogue Italia figure who returns after decades. We then asked each of them to tell us the story of their life in a minute. A project that aims to become a document of our times”. (source)

Vogue Italia releases an all white cover for their April 2020 issue, out on April 10th. The timeless color represents many things:
“White is first of all respect.
White is rebirth, the light after darkness, the sum of all colours.
White is the colour of the uniforms worn by those who put their own lives on the line to save ours.
It represents space and time to think, as well as to stay silent.
White is for those who are filling this empty time and space with ideas, thoughts, stories, lines of verse, music and care for others.
White recalls when, after the crisis of 1929, this immaculate colour was adopted for clothes as an expression of purity in the present, and of hope in the future.
Above all: white is not surrender, but a blank sheet waiting to be written, the title page of a new story that is about to begin,” said the publication’s Editor-in-Chief Emanuele Farneti. (source)

Vogue Italia released the covers for their latest issue where all seven covers are drawn by artists, ranging from well-known art icons and emerging talents to comic book legends, who have created without travelling, shipping entire wardrobes of clothes or polluting in any way.
“The challenge was to prove it is possible to show clothes without photographing them. This is a first, Vogue Italia has never had an illustrated cover: and as far as I know no issue of Vogue Italia in which photography is not the primary visual medium has ever been printed. Thanks to this idea, and to these artists’ process, the money saved in the production of this issue will go towards financing a project that really deserves it: the restoration of Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice, severely damaged by the recent floods,” said the magazine EIC Emanuele Farneti.
The models featured in the illustrations are Lili Sumner, Assa Baradji, Ambar Cristal Zarzuela, Lindsey Wixson, Olivia Vinten, and Felice Nova. The covers are illustrated by David Salle, Vanessa Beecroft, Delphine Desane, Cassi Namoda, Yoshitaka Amano, Milo Manara, and Paolo Ventura. (source)
