WHO WE ARE
Listed |ˈlɪstɪd| from list |lɪst| archaic
1) verb [ no obj. ] want; like
2) noun [ mass noun ] desire or inclination; from Old English lystan (verb), of Germanic origin, from a base meaning ‘pleasure’.
You can call it a “Swetalian” Creative Collective. Double trouble.
Once upon a time, an Italian XX and a Swedish XY accidentally bumped into each other. Both were on a quixotic mission.
E. had fallen in love with Stieg Larsson’s novels and wanted to learn Swedish to be able to re-read them in the original version, being the language nerd she is.
T. , on the other hand, wanted to speak Italian out of sheer adoration for the sunny Sicily, its deep blue sea and the magnificent Etna (volcano lovers anyone?).
So, what happens when you put together two creative night owls, one based in Sweden and the other in Italy, and you mix and match Italian enthusiasm with Swedish lagom*? (*If you’re not familiar with this Swedish word, we won’t spoil the fun for you: you can look it up and get back to us).
Well, handle it with care: it’s explosive!
It all started out as a bunch of puns in English, some drawings and some random ideas.
Then, Listed turned into a space where we share thoughts and we channel our creativity into what we care about the most.
We believe in standing up for human rights, speak up and do our part in this life. “Be the change you want to see in the world”, to quote Gandhi.
Well, we do our best to always start from within and embody the change we wish to see. We’re two perfectly imperfect human beings so, in the attempt, we make tons of mistakes on a daily basis. Sometimes we gloriously fuck it up. But we show up and never give up.
Welcome on board, readers!
