It is with excitement that today we announce the publication of the Issue n. 99 of Tra i Leoni. In this edition, we bring to you discussions about democracy, censorship, war, and more light-hearted topics to do with history and art.
With constant coverage of tragedy, it is easy to feel that we are surrounded by it. And that is because, to an extent, that is true. From the Sunset Park shooting to the other side of the Atlantic in Ukraine, at any point in time there is always a disaster occurring. And much like our Editorial Director graciously mentioned on page 2, while tragedy is common it is important, rather it is necessary, for us to not become desensitized to it. Let this Issue serve as a reminder that empathy and understanding are essential to keep us grounded.
Some of the articles in this issue include:
Long live the Freedom of Art: The artistic heritage of Ukraine
