Since more than 60 years, the magazine VEDERE is witness of the evolution of the optics and eyewear sector in Italy and in the world and is addressed to trade professionals.
Born in Italy in 1953, the first publication of its kind, VEDERE became international in 1971, with texts in 4 languages and worldwide circulation. Again, it was the first international trade magazine in the world.
Since 2010 there are two versions: VEDERE Italia, aimed only at the Italian market, and VEDERE International, in English and addressed to the foreign market; since 2015 the circulation of both magazines is in the digital version and hard copies are available at the main trade fairs worldwide.
