How did it all begin?
La Piccioletta Barca was launched in the Autumn of 2018 with the aim of filling a vacuum in the creative world - namely, to establish a distinct voice that endorses a multidisciplinary (and interdisciplinary) approach to the arts. Our motivations were clear from the get-go: all we desire is to publish high-quality pieces from artists who feel passionately about their ideas.
In the past two years, we have achieved that. Having published over three-hundred pieces in twenty carefully curated issues, our archive now stands as a testament to the artistic vision of the magazine, and the incredible talent of its contributors. Alongside our commitment to publishing meaningful art, we stand firm in the conviction that artists should be judged by their work, and that alone. Thus, we are proud to discover and publish multiple emerging talents alongside more established artists in their field, such as Titos Patrikios (Winner of the Greek Lifetime Achievement in Poetry), Polly Barton (2-time PEN award-winning translator) and Hernán Cortés Moreno, one of the most acclaimed contemporary portrait artists in Europe.
