Emanuele Farneti has been named the new editor in chief of Vogue Italia. Farneti will also serve as the head of L’Uomo Vogue.
Farneti more recently served as editor of GQ Italia.
“Emanuele, who has been at the helm of eight different publications in his career, is currently one of the most expert, admired and talented editors in chief we have in Italy,” wrote Condé Nast International’s chairman and CEO Jonathan Newhouse, in a memo obtained by WWD. “He is considered a real ‘magazine maker’ able to bring novelties, fresh layouts and high quality to each title he directed.”
Farneti is succeeding Franca Sozzani, who died in December.
