Alice Venturi (also known online as AliceLikeAudrey) is a make-up artist who has decided to share her life on the web. Between make-up and life advice, her personality has been on the rise off the web as well. She participated in Beijing Express 2017 paired with Guglielmo Scilla: their team, the #Friends, represented one of the most convincing teams of the edition. From 2014 to 2017 she was part of the Detto Fatto (Rai2) team, where she then returned between 2019 and 2020, while, also in 2017, she participated in the second edition of House Of Gag (TV8).

On 18 October 2021 "Tutte le volte che", the original Spotify podcast that Alice hosts with her friend Camihawke, conceived and produced by Show Reel Agency, will be released.
Camihawke Camilla Boniardi, born in 1990, is one of the personalities who has been able to best combine her presence on the web with that of other media: she has distinguished herself for the tone of voice with which she recounts her reality and that of social media, with a very particular irony and finesse, and has made "normal and common imperfection" the central key to her storytelling. From July 2017 to July 2018 she co-hosts with AliceLikeAudrey the radio programme "Girl
Solving" on Radio2. She was among the protagonists of "Pink Different", the all-female programme aired on FoxLife at the end of 2017. Also on TV, in September 2019, Camihawke joins Carlo Cracco in Rai 2's new cooking programme "Nella mia cucina", on air from Monday to Friday at 7:35 pm for twenty episodes. On 20 April 2021 Camilla publishes her first novel "Per tutto il resto dei miei sbagli" (Mondadori), which immediately becomes a publishing case, dominating the general bestseller list for five weeks and selling over 55,000 copies in just one month. The release of the book also brought her into dialogue with authors of the calibre of Teresa Ciabatti, Chiara Gamberale, Chiara Tagliaferri and Silvia Avallone.
Casa Surace was born in 2015 from the encounter between boys and girls from Naples and Sala Consilina. As a factory and production house, Casa Surace carries out its projects by leveraging cinema, theatre and new languages borrowed from the web, always maintaining the right balance between spontaneity, light satire and fun. Casa Surace is now an "extended family" made up of a community of over 4 million on the web; it has totalled over a billion views on Facebook and YouTube; it has collaborated with the most important national and international brands, it has published a novel entitled "Quest'anno non scendo" (2018) published by Sperling&Kupfer and "Il Manuale del Fuorisede" (2020) published by Panini. Moved by the desire to promote the best products and regional variety of Italy, in 2020 she launched the "Staisciupacco" project, a series of themed packages containing typical food products but also gadgets and unique objects that you can receive directly at home, wherever you are. All of this follows the same guiding spirit, which is to explore the world of entertainment in the round, online and offline.

The Pozzolis Family is the comic family of the web idol parents. Consisting of parents, Alice Mangione and Gianmarco Pozzoli, and their two children, Giosuè and Olivia, they recount their daily lives and deal with issues related to the world of parenting with an absolutely truthful, ironic and irreverent tone, definitely far from the stereotypes of the "perfect family".

Sofia Viscardi, born in 1998, is a web creator with a huge following on social networks, boasting a community of over 800,000 subscribers on YouTube and 1.3 million followers on Instagram. Thanks to her extroverted character, her spontaneity and the authentic language that characterises her videos, in just a few years she has managed to become the spokesperson for the Z generation, made up of young people with concrete ambitions and ready to challenge themselves. Her creative talent is not only limited to the web, but also extends to the world of publishing. In 2016, in fact, he published his first novel "Succede", which quickly became a best seller with over 100,000 copies. The feedback from the public and critics was so overwhelming that Sofia's novel was also brought to the big screen: in 2018, in fact, "Succede - Il Film", produced by Indigo Film with the support of Show Reel, was released in cinemas. On 20 February 2018, she published her second novel, "Abbastanza" (Mondadori), which in just one week took first place in the bestsellers list and second place in the Italian fiction list. In 2018, she reached first place in Forbes Italy's "100 under 30" list in the Media category. In 2019, Sofia Viscardi founded VENTI, a digital publishing project of which she is artistic director.
Lorenzo Luporini was born in Pietrasanta in 1995 but is keen to claim he is still Milanese. He graduated from the Catholic University of Milan in communication and society and since 2017 he has been working in the field of music communication as a press officer and as a divulger at the Giorgio Gaber Foundation. Lorenzo starts collaborating with Venti in 2019 as face and author finally finding a justification to do long monologues and a legitimisation to his greatest passion: making big talk.
VENTI is the digital editorial project that Sofia Viscardi carries out both on her YouTube channel (which now takes the name "Venti's Channel") and on her Instagram profile @profilodiventi. It is imagined as a dispensation of thoughts, testimonies and insights of various kinds and can be defined
as a magazine in which the written form is replaced by the audiovisual one. VENTI is a place of cultural translation where, through interviews, vlogs, reportages and useful readings, the twenty years of today are tackled and explored. VENTI was born from the need of the young web creator to decline information in forms and languages more familiar to digital natives, and to create a meeting place between the "old" and the "new" generation by accumulating as many experiences and points of view as possible. The project consists of interviews with influential personalities, cultural mini-documentaries and lively reflections on what it means to be twenty years old nowadays, and is characterised by a delicate, curious and empathetic tone of voice that allows Sofia to maintain a relationship of equals with its community. In 2021 Venti declined its editorial project in audio format and became Senti20, an original Spotify podcast conceived and produced by Show Reel Agency, which debuted at the top of Spotify's Top Podcast Italia chart.
