At LoSpremiagrumi [the Juicesqueezer] we do things, we meet people and we love writing about design, architecture, fashion, music, art, events and basically everything that comes up to our mind. Originally based in Italy, our network has taken us to Mexico, Thailand, Cambodia, Switzerland and Greece. Founded on 2005 by Tommaso Maggio and Luca Ubertini. It was the first italian blog in italian language talking about topics as architecture, design, art, fashion, events etc. On 2010 Mixt has designed the new layout. LoSpremiagrumi [the Juicesqueezer] is a visual platform to exchange incentives, inspirations, but most of all experiences.
