Condé Nast Italy to Offer Free Digital Issues Amid Coronavirus Lockdown

MILAN — As Italians are urged to stay at home amid a national lockdown until April 3, Condé Nast Italy is offering digital copies of all its titles for free for the next three months. Starting from March 13, readers will be able to access Condé Nast’s content and browse the digital pages of titles including Vogue, GQ, Wired, AD, La Cucina Italiana and Condé Nast Traveller, following the instructions reported on each magazine’s web site and app. In addition, La Scuola de La Cucina Italiana — the publisher’s gastronomic magazine — will offer free passes to access its digital cooking classes. “In a moment like this one, in which the priority is the national health, our mission continues to be the one to inform and entertain, and to do so in the correct way,” said Condé Nast Italia chief executive officer Fedele Usai. “Our [initiative] is just a small signal intended to try to give back something to the community. It’s important that everybody do their part.” The project follows the publishing company’s launch earlier this week of a Vanity Fair Italy issue dedicated to Milan and distributed for free in the Lombardy region, one of the most severely hit by the COVID-19 outbreak.
