NewItalianBooks - International Launch

NewItalianBooks is the new bilingual portal that promotes Italian publishing, language and culture in the world.

It is a project by the Istituto dell'Enciclopedia Italiana Treccani with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) the Centro per il libro e la lettura (part of MiBACT) in collaboration with the Associazione Italiana Editori (AIE), aimed at Italian and foreign publishers, literary agents, translators, Italianists, Italian Cultural Institutes, Italians abroad and all literature lovers.

On 2 July at 10,30 am, ICI London Director Katia Pizzi will illustrate the project, together with Paolo Grossi (MAECI), who will present the portal and the recent extraordinary measures taken by the Directorate-General for the Promotion of the Sistema Paese MAECI in support of the publishing sector.
