A new magazine is born in Italy! Scacchi, Pugilato, Qualcos’altro e Rugby (SPQ&R) is a magazine that puts together some sports that are not mainstream in Italy (chess, boxing, rugby and chessboxing). It wants to popularise these by offering enough pages of each sport to have a varied readership that can get to know the other sports. The magazine looks at each sport from a multiplicity of angles: exclusive interviews and reports, articles about the history and artistic side of the sports and plenty of interdisciplinary articles such as: chess and travel, chess and art, rugby and pugilism, chess and martial arts, boxing and cinema and so on. Chess Queen™ Alexandra Kosteniuk is featured on the cover of this new magazine and comments one of her games. You can download the whole first issue for free here.
