Umbigo [“Bellybutton”] is an art, culture, fashion and lifestyle magazine published quarterly.
Launched in June 2002, it filled the need for a Portuguese art and culture publication when there was none. At first it was a magazine that explored the theme of the body as a means of artistic expression. Over time, it has gone through a number of changes, broadening its scope and becoming more wide-ranging.
To the present day, Umbigo has made an indelible mark on the Portuguese media publishing scene as a definitive art, fashion and culture statement, a cult collector’s item from issue number one, hearted by a growing legion of readers.
From issue #68, there are two editions, one in Portuguese and one in English; and has national and international distribution.
