Dear Cronaca

Cronaca Vera (True Chronicle) began in 1969 as a tabloid magazine about Italian crime. Printed on low quality stock, in black and white, and sold at the cost of one euro, Cronaca Vera consists of 15 stories—crazy, depressing, hilarious, local and national, but all of them true. It's the most popular magazine in Italian jails and receives more than 20,000 hand-written letters a year from its readers. The VICE Italy office is filled with floor-to-ceiling piles of Cronaca Vera.
