Sirene is an international award-winning bi-annual publication, tailored for those people who feel close to the sea even when they are far away from it. Large recycled paper pages, rough and porous as only saltwater stains can be, large white spaces, pure as a sea horizon, and page-turner stories that will put you on the same wave-length with a surging community looking at the oceans as the intersection of the planet’s destinies. Its paper is made from algae, to make use of excess algal blooms from lagoons at risk. For every half kilo of fresh algae, a kilo of wood is saved.
This spring/summer issue of 2022 features: Tim Winton: Saving Ningaloo. Lightships. Gregorio Paltrinieri: the Blue Beyond the Swim Lane. Surfmobiles. Ponza. Ernest Shackleton. Venice-Corfu in a folkboat. In Rousteau’s Sea. Marseille: the Enclave of the Barquette. Ama Fisherwomen.
