global: monocle mediterraneo 2011

following last year's successful launch monocle magazine officially releases the second edition of its summer newspaper monocle mediterraneo today. on newsstands for eight weeks, the seasonal read offers a sophisticated mix of essays, reportage and interviews. highlights include an interesting report on athens, featuring locals who’ve seen the positive in the crisis and are determined to bring about a grassroots renaissance, a series of interesting and witty essays from monocle's platoon of well-versed contributors, and an article that explores how the cypriot capital’s short flight times, soviet educated elite and relaxed tax laws are making sleepy nicosia a favourite hangout for muscovites. and along with the newspaper launch comes a monocle pop-up store in the tuscan resort of pietrasanta, opening this weekend in the courtyard of savvy menswear store zoe. it will offer a special selection of wannahave items, but we'll have more news on that shortly! © monocle
