Suq is an editorial hybrid, a fusion between a travel diary and a photo album that aims to present ad share the underlayer of an island that has been paralyzed by the symbols of its folkloristic iconography for too long.
Suq is like a breeze in late spring.
It’s freshness on a frosty morning. Touching the cheeks, giving you goosebumps.
Making you nostalgic.
Suq is a startup founded in Sicily by a group of creatives and travelers who one day decided to explore the island’s unconventional heritage. A heritage made of places, people, businesses, arts, and symbols that are currently hidden. A heritage made of everything we can touch, but also of everything we can only feel when we’re in touch with our senses. So only at first sight it may seem like a magazine, because it’s actually photography, story, emotion, journey, nostalgia, desire, and beauty, that of a new culture and a new way of seeing and experiencing Sicily.
In a country where footprints are wiped out by the wind, in order to exist one has to keep on impressing his tracks on the path. To go on the bare rock, to listen, to observe. To travel.
This quote sums up perfectly the whole idea behind Suq. And is my favorite one.
I knew I would be nicely surprised, it’s something you just know. Sicily has a sentimental place in my heart and finding out about this project made me extremely happy. It’s not every day you stumble upon things like this here, unconventional. Suq shows the other side of Sicily, the unexplored and authentic one. The graphic design is by Nomad Studio, the creative director behind the project is Francesco Cusumano. The magazine is available online at suqmagazine.com and selected stores in Italy in both italian and english.
