(ANSA) - ROME, MARCH 03 - "Dear readers, dear readers, for this cover, I know they will accuse me of blasphemy, but the saints and the Madonnas are images that are part of my history, of my existential gallery. Thanks also to them, I learned to generate myself, without help, by treating creativity as a Holy Spirit ".
Thus begins the letter that Achille Laur writes exclusively for Vanity Fair, which dedicates the cover of the issue on newsstands to him, in which he appears in the guise of a religious icon.
In the long letter in which he explains that he does "all this in order not to be trivialized within a stereotype", Achille Lauro also explains why he often assumes feminine features: "My answer is simple: because the woman is the ultimate symbol of freedom".
For the first time, the cover of Vanity Fair is animated: by framing the QR code, you are transported to the exhibition that Achille Lauro has created exclusively for the readers of the newspaper.
It is ideally his sixth Sanremo performance, which is added to the five paintings that the artist offers during the five evenings of the Sanremo Festival.
For the first time it also has a soundtrack, thanks to the collaboration with Spotify, the first of the streaming service with a newspaper.
In support of the interviews with the singers competing in Sanremo, the reader will be able to find a Spotify code to frame, with their smartphone, to listen to a playlist with the songs suggested by the Big.
The issue, in fact, contains interviews with the singers ingara at this year's Festival.
Vanity Fair tells the Sanremo Festival also on all its social platforms.
From 2 to 6 March on Clubhouse 5 evening appointments are scheduled to comment live on the festival.
