a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Giulia R., from palermo, italy. i've been into zines for about four years now, i've read plenty and i've started a few, of which only one was completed (the first issue of "the oak", a perzine). now i'm thinking about starting another one, and i'm here to search for inspiration and eventually i'll post about it. at the moment the project is to make a zine that includes words from my personal diary and recensions of music, movies and books.
i am the bassist for the italian post-punk band PSORIASI!. my interests include: philosophy, books, music, movies, the divine feminine and Astarte in particular, sicilian traditions, theatre, painting, sewing and embroiding and, of course, reading\making zines.

mistrettazine is the provisorial name for my new creation. it takes its name from mistretta, a little town in sicily that was named after the Goddess Astarte.
the first issue of the zine will feature: an english translation of um urnàt, a fairy tale by bjork, a biography of ulrike meinhof, a review of the movie "themroc" by faraldo, and bits from my personal diary and blog. the zine will be written both in italian and english.
