FMR "Black" Magazine Goes Gold in a Special One-off Issue of the "Black Pearl",

NEW YORK, NY.- An all-gold front cover for FMR “Black” magazine. The prestigious magazine published by Marilena Ferrari-FMR fine art publishing house, and created by the Fondazione of the same name, is to go gold for its March edition, issue number 30.

FMR magazine is internationally recognized as one of the most prestigious, refined and exclusive art publications ever and was referred to by Federico Fellini as “the black pearl of the publishing world." First presented in the United States about twenty-six years ago, the magazine made its triumphant return to New York in March 2008. Now FMR surprises us with an unmistakable elegant gold cover.

Since the dawn of time, mysterious, yet tangible, earthly and divine gold has been the meeting point of the highest artistic craftsmanship and intellectual skill. This suggestive encounter with atavistic roots fully represents the profound philosophy of the Marilena Ferrari-FMR fine art publishing house and the Fondazione of the same name.

This is a special issue because of its graphic layout and contents, state-of-the-art photography, and art texts.

The monographic theme is gold, first and foremost as a “symbol, myth and metaphysical element,” as explained by editor-in-chief Flaminio Gualdoni.

Through Otto von Hessen’s texts, the magazine rediscovers Lombard goldsmithing art as the master of Barbarian abstraction, the origin of the great European decoration.

Next Umberto Re embarks on a journey from antiquity to contemporary art, from the Temple of Solomon to Yves Klein, in search of gold as the ultimate mystical symbol, the unifying element of all religions from East to West.

Gold in mosaic art is the theme of I mosaici di San Marco a Venezia, in which contemporary artist Davide Benati gives a passionate reinterpretation of age-old art.

The section ends with a journey by Marisa Porcu Gaias among the Ori di Sardegna and their anthropological, magical and ornamental implications.

The second part is dedicated to regular features such as “Stories of the Eye,” in this issue dedicated to the visionary and silent theatre of Roger Ballen, and “Mappa Mundi,” which takes a look at the mausoleum of Maximilian I in Innsbruck through the photographs of Aurelio Amendola.

The magazine is published in four languages: Italian, English, French and Spanish.
