Benetton has announced the birth of an online community of bloggers dedicated to communicating the very essence of the brand to the target audience. A new blog, or superblog, to be more precise, has been launched at www.blog.benetton.com showcasing the latest and most interesting topics related to technology, fashion, culture and life of young people around the world.
