Finnegans was born in 2004, promoting the cultural tradition of the Veneto region, extending the historical and artistic investigation into the Mediterranean area.
There are two editions published in these years: the first promoted many Venetian artists through monographic issues, exploring their artistic paths, ties with the land of origin and with their cultural roots.
Of this edition full of 22 numbers, we recall in particular the files dedicated to the architects Carlo Scarpa and Edoardo Gellner, to the painter Emilio Vedova, to the sculptor Arturo Martini, to the musician and composer Luigi Nono, to the futurist composer and painter Luigi Russolo, to the writers Goffredo Parise and Mario Rigoni Stern, to the poets Giacomo Noventa, David Maria Turoldo and Andrea Zanzotto.
The second edition came out in 2013, renewed in content and graphics, focused on the historical-artistic themes of Venice and the Veneto, with the aim of broadening its historical and cultural research in the Mediterranean, a great place of meeting and clash, of old and new cultural frontiers, of migrations, of integrations, of fractures and subsequent political-social junctions, which represent an important cultural challenge from which Finnegans cannot escape.
Three issues of the new editorial project have been released, the first dedicated to Venice Art Biennale, the second to Cultural Venice of the 50s / 60s and the last a Venice and the Mediterranean. The latter publications were translated into English and distributed nationally.
