Towards the 14th century

In seven days we will be on newsstands with L'Orologio no. 300!

A milestone that corresponds to almost 30 years of history and life, of the magazine and the people who helped build it, up to this round (and full) issue.

So many signatures have appeared on our pages, today all professionals in the sector: editors-in-chief, watch experts, columnists. I am pleased to remember Augusto Veroni, who with my father Renato Giussani co-founded L'Orologio in 1992, Maurizio Favot, deputy editor of the first hour, Fabrizio Rinversi, a collaborator fresh out of university and then editor-in-chief, Paolo Gobbi, who signed kilometres of articles for L'Orologio. And then, of course, there are those who still work today to produce the magazine and to make it always current and interesting: Simonetta Suzzi, our editor-in-chief, my brother Fabrizio Giussani, who supports me in many activities, Valentina Ronchi, the backbone of the editorial staff, our exceptional photographer Alessandro Neri, Maurizio Massarotti, the tireless advertising manager, Ilaria Cerroni, who responds with kindness to the needs of subscribers, and all our external collaborators: Roberto Vacca, Francesco Patti, Andrea Schillaci, Ilenia Carlesimo, Mara Cella, Alessandro Rigotto, Marco Taddei, Giacomo Perotti, Giacomo Zamattio and Massimo Belfiore.

The great thing about L'Orologio is that, for many of our readers, their names are not just names. With the establishment of L'Orologio Club, the opportunities to meet with the enthusiasts who read us every month have multiplied. In this regard, I would like to anticipate that the Club's activities are resuming with a busy and interesting programme (the next appointment is set for 19 November, precisely for the launch of issue 300), which promises a lively 2022. Other partner brands have joined the names that have historically supported the Club, but I will let you find out who they are on newsstands in a week's time.
