He posted the cover on Instagram, saying that there was already an April 2020 cover in the works, but decided to put in on hold. He says, “to speak of anything else – while people are dying, doctors and nurses are risking their lives and the world is changing forever – is not the DNA of Vogue Italia.”

This is also the first time in history that the iconic magazine is releasing a completely white cover. The editor-in-chief said that they didn’t choose white because of a lack of images, they chose white because it signifies many things at the same time.

Farneti adds, “White is not surrender, but a blank sheet waiting to be written, the title page of a new story that is about to begin.”
