Margherita Visentini

Founder & Creative director

A country girl Madrid based, I write, I shoot, I travel, I drink coffee, and I think -they say- too much. Sometimes I feel a bit lost, like inside a Sofia Coppola movie, but going to visit Guernica or eating pizza makes me feel better right away. Waiting to leave for a round-the-world trip, I founded a magazine called Polpettas On Paper. I would never have to answer to one of my interviews!

I still live in a world 1.0, where photography is analog and I still like having a conversation during lunch break instead of looking at my email on the phone. I'm a video editor because I like putting things together but even though It's quite a time I'm doing this, how it works in the end is pure magic to me.

Illustrator and graphic designer based in Amsterdam, co-founder of internoconcucina, a research and styling studio focused on food culture. Pattern sucker, plant lover and compulsive list maker - I am often busy combining coloured paper into tiny collages and playing my ukulele. I believe the cure to anything is a new book or a walk to the sea side - possibly both and in this order.

Cinema is my Linus' security blanket: watching a good movie, on my sofa or on a cinema seat, I always feel welcome. So I decided to join some of my passions, writing and cinema, giving life to the bonsai reviews, little experiments of style and creativity.

I'm a professional procrastinator and a crazy cat lady in the free time. I weigh life in insta-grams while fantasizing about breakfasts in bed. In the meantime I write, take photos and chase my dreams in Milan.

I came back home but I’m always ready to go again. Freelance press office, I teach letters in the secondary school and I think there isn’t a job better than this. As there is nothing more beautiful of waking up in a new place, leave and then return, the pages of a good book, a table of friends, a walk to the sea, in the countryside or in the city, the camera of my iPhone and Rucola, my dog and my roommate.
