Emanuele Farneti has been appointed new Editor in Chief of Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue.
Jonathan Newhouse, chairman and chief executive of Condé Nast International announced “Emanuele is one of the most experienced, accomplished and admired editors in Italy today, with experience as Editor in Chief of eight magazines in his career”.
Farneti came to Condé Nast Italia in 1999 as part of the team which launched Gentlemen’s Quarterly (GQ). He was Editor of the fashion magazine Flair and in 2014 he returned to Condé Nast Italia where he served as Editor of AD and relaunched it before taking on his current position as Editor of GQ.
“There was only one Franca. Yet she herself recognised that Vogue had a life which transcended the creativity of any individual. She knew and had great respect for Emanuele, and I believe she would have approved” says Jonathan Newhouse.
