Our story

There are many worlds to tell, so many lives, and an undefined number of creations, more or less artistic. And behind all this, there are people, people who believe in what they do, doing their best. This is why Polpettas Mag was born: from the pages of www.polpettas.com we proudly offer you deep interviews sincerely told by their protagonists, full of inspiration and passion, and presented with a minimalist design, to give you the chance to discover all the beauty of contemporary creativity. We virtually travelled around all the art branches: architecture, design, illustration, music, photography and much more, taking you every time to experience the magic of toy design, the boldness of gorgeous street artists, the emotion of a cover book made by a young illustrator.

Polpettas On Paper: a new story to tell

Now we are ready to be carried into your library! And in your bag, your backpack, everywhere, and every time you need some fresh air and some wonderful inspiration.

Because our stories deserve a proper format to be enjoyed at their best. And what about the experience of touching with hand old style paper magazine? We believe in the magic of flicking through the pages and just being pleasantly surprised!
