The lecture will give an overview of the publishing market in Italy -- dominated by large editorial groups but also a huge number of small family imprints -- through the publications of Adriano Salani editore. Established in Florence in 1862, Salani is one of the oldest publishing house still in business. Its catalogue includes international authors and Italian authors translated into many languages. Its history is the history of a country through two centuries. Its illustrations anticipates the arrival of new media.


Mariagrazia Mazzitelli graduated in Foreign Languages and received her doctorate in Russian Literature in 1985. In the same year she started working in publishing as editor at Electa, leader in art and architecture books; later she continued in the educational division of Elemond (Electa, Einaudi, Mondadori) in charge of a cultural review. Since 1995 she joined Salani (an imprint of GEMS Gruppo Editoriale Mauri Spagnol, the first independent publishing group in Italy), and in 2000 she was named editorial director for adult and children books. In the recent years she has been invited to take part in many international and national literary and editorial events.
