Outside Launches Italian Edition

cover_sept2007_toc.jpgMama mia! We just received word that Outside will launch an Italian version this March, its fourth international edition. Into the wild indeed.

The magazine will feature content from the English version translated into Italian, as well as additional fashion and style pages (appropriate for those impeccably dressed Italians), news and features. It will publish eight times a year, with a circulation of 200,000.

“Outside Italy will deliver the same kind of award-winning content that the magazine has become known for,” Anne Mollo-Christensen, vice president of business development at Outside, said in a statement. And pasta. We hope there’s lots of pasta. It’s great for carbo-loading.

Full release after the jump.
