LogoJanusJanus

The international and multidisciplinary magazine Janus, with its renewed international editorial team of young researchers, continues its mission after accepting the challenge given to the new director Nicola Setari by Belgian artist Jan Fabre who formerly founded the magazine together with Dirk Imsckoot in 1999.


The Dena Foundation renews its collaboration with the magazine passing on, in its thematic pages, mages of artists and appropriate essays of Italian writers.
Since summer 2006, the Foundation collaborates in the preparation of the Janus Summer Symposium which takes place in July in the LeWitt Foundation in Praiano, in Italy.
