QUADRA, inspired by the Latin word QUADRAGESIMA, is an independent online space focusing on writing, art and food. Born out of times of confinement, our ambition is to create a delectable platform, bringing readers together through opinions and stories. The Latin word for ‘fortieth’ - ‘quadragesima’- is the root of the modern-day Italian ‘quaresima’, meaning Lent. ‘Quarantine’ also derives its existence from the Latin ‘forty’. Forty days and nights in the desert is, of course, a famous biblical tale, but we do not see this as a time for cultural fasting - quite the contrary. We hope this provides you with a much-needed source of diversion.
