The faces of Bebe Vio and Alessandro Pittin, portrayed intimately in a family hug and an Italian winter. The purple of the Phantoms of Cathedral High School in Los Angeles. The black and white images of one of the first Eroica. The sacred silence of remote basketball courts, and the Nine Limbs fight in the bamboo arena in Pyng Thaung, Burma. This is the first issue of Athleta, an intense journey in the different forms of sport culture.
