Textural Anthologies is a podcast series curated and, hosted by Massimo Casagrande, that explores the personal and professional side of creative individuals in various industries, to discover more about their stories, their journey, what makes them tick, and above all, their creative outlets.
Conducted in an informal way, sometimes questions are prepared beforehand and in other cases, the questions are born naturally from the conversation. There is spontaneity in the content and the main purpose is for the guest to say whatever they feel and want and above all have fun.
Today’s creative boundaries are blurred more than ever and through this series, we will explore how these contemporary creative ‘caesars', are influenced and inspired.
As the journalist and writer, Alain Elkann once said, "an interview is a photograph made of words" and I would like you all to leave at the end of this series with a special photo album.
Enjoy the episodes.
