The prestigious list recognises ‘outstanding executives who are making a difference in the marketing, advertising and media industries…(and the) achievements of women challenging the status quo with their approaches to creative work, marketing and business building.’

Cristiana is the only Italian female creative to achieve such extensive international recognition through her work and leadership, winning 53 Cannes Lions amongst many other international awards. She will appear on this year’s D&AD and Clio juries.

She joined Publicis Italy as Executive Creative Director in 2011, together with her creative partner Bruno Bertelli. In their first year, the team were named members of the International Creative Board of Publicis Worldwide. Two years later, they were appointed Global Creative Directors on the global Heineken account after winning the global account for the network. Cristiana has been leading creative across key campaigns for global clients including Heineken, Diesel, Renault and Nestlé. Since her arrival in 2011, she has worked tirelessly alongside Bruno to build the reputation of Publicis and to transform a local agency into a global hub, which can create and adapt work for international clients. In reflection of her achievements, she was promoted to CCO of Publicis Italy this year and stepping up to cover both the Milan and Rome offices.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with our Women to Watch Europe Class of 2018,” says Judann Pollack, deputy editor of Ad Age. “Not only are their accomplishments great within their own companies, this group of women are breaking boundaries to create a more inclusive and equal workplace within the industry at large.”

Cristiana added: “I am honoured to be recognised by Ad Age, alongside a list of outstanding leaders. Creative leadership to me is about encouraging and supporting creative teams to excel in what they believe is possible. We have built a great international talent pool at Publicis Italy and throughout the journey, I feel it has been critical to empower the creative teams with strategic clarity and creative structure to liberate their creative thinking and equip them with the confidence to dare”.

Milan, 31 October 2017 – The agency headed by Publicis WW Global Chief Creative Officer Bruno Bertelli edited an original anti-spoiler campaign for Gomorra – La Serie new season. The original Sky production, praised by both audiences and critics, has been exported to more than 190 countries.

The TV series will be on air from November 17, while its first episodes will be pre-released in 300 cinemas on November 14 and 15. Gomorra – La Serie, produced by Cattleya for Sky, puts on screen a new narrative format which has rewritten Italian series’ standards by setting up a plot entirely made up of bad characters and without any positive hero.

This very narrative feature inspired agency’s creative team in developing its idea of campaign.
The most feared Gomorra’s characters ally against a common enemy: spoilers. Indeed, they alone can challenge the biggest threat to all TV series lovers.

The integrated campaign, launched on TV, social networks, digital and posters, is based on an ad hoc website: http://spoilerkillers.it/ .

From here, series main characters reply to whom dared to “speak too much” about TV series, either Gomorra or other great productions of the moment, thus spoiling one’s surprise.
The tool allows everyone to create and send to his or her own contacts a customised clip in which one of the series’ protagonists talks directly to the guilty party, encouraging him or her to keep his or her mouth shut, in perfect Gomorra style.

Campaign production was assigned to Think Cattleya and to one of the series’ official directors, Claudio Cupellini, making the project totally consistent with the TV series’ aesthetics and tone of voice.

Milan, 5 June 2017 – The second subject of Renault Crossover range campaign, dedicated to New Captur and designed by Publicis, has been on air since Sunday.

A woman and a man sit in a car. She breaks up with him after saying ‘no’ to a marriage proposal. Overcome by despair, he’s thinking about deleting his ex-girlfriend’s name, tattooed on his skin. But then he gets a better idea. New Renault Captur spot starts from here. The idea is that even when life seems to be at a dead end, a small deviation is sufficient to find your own way.

Besides the movie, a press and poster campaign and a digital display plan scheduled by OMD are envisaged. Production company is Henry again, while Martin Werner signs the direction.

Publicis Italia in Fucecchio for Local Heroes

Milan, 30 May 2017 – Publicis Italia signed the project naming small Italian towns’ streets after living local heroes.

In Italy, there are about 600 small towns where everything talks about our local identity: buildings, shops … everything contributes to shape a common identity – everything but the streets. Many names have nothing to do with local history and they are the same everywhere.

Hence, the municipality of Fucecchio, a small town in the heart of Tuscany, and Publicis Italia have launched “Local Heroes”. The project aims at replacing the existing street names with those of living people who have had an important role in recent community history.

Fucecchio’s inhabitants can propose their own personal hero thanks to a small website: https://www.local-heroes.it/ . They can choose a street on Google Maps and tell their hero’s story through a clip, a picture or a text. In this way, the most important and meaningful characters will be remembered forever thanks to the new town street names.

The project started in early April, when a launch video explained the initiative to all Fucecchio’s dwellers. The opening of the first streets took place between April 22 and 23.

Next to the new signs, people can unlock Local Heroes’ stories on their own smartphones thanks to Google Nearby technology and to the Estimote beacons.

The Publicis team realising such project was made up of creative directors Giovanni Settesoldi and Cristiano Tonnarelli – Art Director and Copy Writer respectively – Digital Creative Director Massimo Guerci, Copywriter Albertina Coacci, Digital Art Director Dario Citriniti, who have worked with the support of Account Filippo D’Andrea and Digital Project Manager Vittorio Cafiero. Bruno Bertelli and Cristiana Boccassini have been in charge of executive creative direction.
