FMR - Franco Maria Ricci The Most Beautiful Magazine in the World
FMR’S MISSION … … is to promote a different culture and to do so in a different way …
FMR seeks … … to promote a culture of art that has understood and responsibly embraced the task of questioning, clarifying, and constantly practicing the very foundations of our civilization, outside of which not only is art impossible, but so is living worthy of the name.
FMR believes … … that culture is luxury : the luxury of being, not having; a way of life, not a mere accoutrement …
FMR believes … … that the physical substance of a publication, in terms of quality of materials, print and binding, is a cultural choice even more than an aesthetic one …
FMR is in the business of culture … through culture and the art of values, it produces wealth …
FMR’s philosophy is to be a merchant of culture … <ul><li>… what FMR sells is not books and works of art … </li></ul><ul><li>… it is the thoughts, pearls of wisdom, reasoning, doubts, and intellectual and practical knowledge of every mind … </li></ul><ul><li>that helps engender those products: </li></ul><ul><li>authors, crafters, technicians and workers in a dedicated cohesion of wills … </li></ul><ul><li>… in a unity constantly rebuilt, giving true momentum to the creative urge. </li></ul><ul><li>TO CREATE; NOT TO PRODUCE. </li></ul>
FMR believes in the future. Where there are culture, life projects, activity and values, there can be no resignation or despair.
FMR understands … … that profit without value is like the house of the Scriptures built on sand …
