BooksinItaly.it is the first website promoting Italian publishing, language and culture worldwide. This website, available both in Italian and English, caters to Italian and foreign publishers, literary agents, translators, Italianists, Italian Cultural Institutes as well as Italians living abroad.
To promote Italian publications and to make translating both new books and classics easier, we offer reading reports, we tell editorial stories, we interview the protagonists of the publishing market. We advise on translation grants. We offer databases of publishers, authors and translators. We connect the various linchpins in the industry (publishing houses, literary agents and translators) in Italy and internationally, relying on the extensive network of Italian Cultural Institutes as outposts for the promotion of Italian culture.
And a few more things.
Sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, MIBACT, and Cepell, in collaboration with AIE Associazione Italiana Editori, Expo 2015, Regione Lombardia, Comune di Milano and Fondazione Cariplo, BooksinItaly.it is a joint project overseen by Fondazione Arnoldo e Alberto Mondadori.
The name of this website was conceived during a workshop run by the University of Milan, AIE Associazione Italiana Editori and Fondazione Arnoldo e Alberto Mondadori’s MA in Publishing 2011/2012 program.
