Emanuele Farneti is succeeding the late Franca Sozzani, who died last December, as the new editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia. He will be serving as the head of L’Uomo Vogue as well.
“Emanuele, who has been at the helm of eight different publications in his career, is currently one of the most expert, admired and talented editors-in-chief we have in Italy,” said Jonathan Newhouse, chairman and CEO of Condé Nast International after revealing the appointment of Emanuele Farneti. “He is considered a real ‘magazine maker’ able to bring novelties, fresh layouts and high quality to each title he directed.”
Prior to Farneti‘s new appointment, he has previously worked for GQ Italia as editor and held several various roles in the past such as La Gazzetta dello Sport and Men’s Health.
