The shocking news of the closure of Vaccari Magazine was announced yesterday on the Vaccari News website.
The Vaccari Press Release issued ahead of the release of the journal’s final number (No. 68) includes the “Editorial” signed this time by Valeria Vaccari, the late Paolo’s daughter. The first few lines of the “Editorial” explain why:
I never wanted to write and sign this editorial in my dad’s place.
A long story, that of the Magazine, which could have continued but, by his will, ends here.
I thank personally and also on behalf of my dad (I know he would have done so) all of our writers, many of whom have collaborated with the magazine since the first issue in 1989; all the subscribers and readers who have been following and supporting us.
I thank those who believed in this forward-looking project and published their own advertisements.
I thank all the editorial staff, Francesca who started and Claudia who continued, the makers-up Katia and then Federica. And the typography that accompanied us from the beginning.
A great adventure dad, which I will miss a lot, especially because that was with you.
In this issue some pages are dedicated to him.
In No. 68, Valeria Vaccari dedicated three pages to her father: Dedicato a papà
Paolo Vaccari passed away on 10th October. You can read the announcement here.
