Dear readers,

After different years of contributing to Color Culture and Science Journal (CCSJ) as an author, I am proud to write this editorial as Deputy Editor together with the Editor-in-Chief. In recent years we assisted in the development, growth and resilience of the Associazione Italiana Colore and this Journal.

In 2020 they organized the first online conference of the association, and in 2021 the association was able to organize, manage and handle the AIC International 14th Congress, creating an event which connected people all over the world. In the same year, a new international conference was proposed, the "Colour Photography and Film: sharing knowledge of analysis, preservation, conservation, migration of analogue and digital materials", held online in 2021, and in person in 2022, in its second edition. After so much work online, this year it has been a pleasure to meet all the colour experts, professionals, academics and passionate again in person during the "XVII Color Conference" in September.

During the pandemic, the Associazione Italiana Colore did not stop, but found new energy to develop, improve and complete regular and extraordinary tasks. And I am so glad to become part of this organization.

This editorial is dedicated to all the volunteers supporting the Associazione Italiana Colore, from the inside and outside. I want to thank all the backbones of this group, who contributed to building a stable and robust community, able to face all the encountered difficulties, and all the volunteers managing the website, the secretary, the promotion and the online environments during the conferences. An enormous thank you to the members who are no longer with us, who set the basement to the foundation of the Associazione Italiana Colore.

Now that "The dog days are over", we are ready to restart full of energies, new ideas and projects to improve the Associazione Italiana Colore and Color Culture and Science Journal. We invite you to publish and promote our journal, which is a blind, peer-reviewed, diamond open access, free for readers and authors.
