My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for New Art Publications, Inc., Brooklyn, NY, USA
I am an Italian writer living between the US and Italy. I work both as a screen and as a fiction writer. My films have been screened internationally including at the Venice Film Festival. Fiction is my passion and I have been reading Bomb for years. They have done a great job at bridging the imaginative and creative geographical and cultural gaps within me. They are more than an art magazine and more than a literary journal. Their voice and role in contemporary culture has been fundamental to artists, writers, and musicians because they are a voice, a conversation, a symbol of what the creatives of today feel and think. They represent a boundless approach to culture. In a world where it is so important to "define" ourselves as artists, Bomb gave me the opportunity to write and publish fiction without having to classify and restrict myself to a genre. Publishing my stories in their First Proof section was a liberating experience. It was like being in an imaginary room with like-minded artists and feeling like I was part of something that is bigger than any kind of academic definition.
