ISSUE 2

scala regia cover two issue 2 magazine

Fall/Winter 2015


Presided by effort and will, it is the ideas and fantasies of our team's members that vowed to accomplish the final result. “Impostor Syndrome” wouldn’t be an inconsiderable term to coin our apprehensions each time we reach it, but the process always proves to be thrilling.

With luck and privilege, we perambulated through several cities across its dearly held palaces, museums, galleries and private collections - from Lisbon to Paris and Milan, as well as from Parma to London and Madrid - in order to unite the separate parcels that constitute Scala Regia 2.

The Arts - be it the most extraordinary objects secured in museums, the creative product of exceptional artists and taste makers, or even the savvy artwork enthralled in great interiors - built the support where this issue took form. As so, over the entire process and completion of our private endeavor, were the available and kind voices of all the contributors.
