RetroMagazine World #1 – Eng – June 2020

Editorial by David La Monaca

Spring 2020: there’s a scent of change in the air. Despite the frankly somewhat dark times we live in, this late spring brings many changes in our lives. Perhaps even finally a return to life as we know it, after the CoViD-19 nightmare. Even within our editorial initiative there are no shortage of changes on the horizon. Indeed, many have already started or will soon be under way.Let’s start with the name of your (hopefully) beloved magazine. From this issue the name of the magazine changes to RetroMagazine World. We have been thrifty and modest: we have only added a small word (“World”) to our historical name, mostly in order to show our new intention to address the entire international community and no longer only our numerous Italian readers.How do we intend to do this? Well, actually, we already did it last May 2nd, with the release of issue zero of RetroMagazine English, a pilot publication entirely in English, dedicated to all the retrocomputing, retrogaming and retrocoding fans scattered all over the planet. These readers have long been asking us to bring in a “neutral” language (an official language, understandable to all) for the content and columns that for over two years have been reaching Italian readers. The success of this release has gone beyond all expectations and has definitively convinced us to continue the publications in English. So, starting from this issue #23, a complete English translation will be published about a week or two after the Italian one. The English release of RMW will also include a selection of the most interesting articles and reviews from the first 22 Italian issues.
