An international presence

We develop most of our business in Italy, from books to the chain of bookstores and from magazines to online sites and services. Since 2006, we have also been present in France with print and web brands, with Mondadori France.

Through the acquisition of Rizzoli, we have also been in New York since 2016, publishing English-language art catalogues and illustrated books, and with the Rizzoli Bookstore.

Awareness of our role

Alongside the responsible, sustainable management of our company, with respect for civil society and the environment, we wish to contribute towards reinforcing our country’s extremely significant intangible heritage of culture and beauty and broadening its horizons in terms of opportunity.
Because we have a profound sense that we too are part of this heritage.

In more than 100 years of history, we have worked not only to generate profit for the company, shareholders and employees: the sharing of value, through our products and services, involves all our stakeholders, from authors to readers, from suppliers to institutions and from the world of education to the media.

Awareness of our role and a sense of responsibility provide us with a stimulus for improvement, aiming at ever more ambitious goals

Our strategy

The path for the coming years will be characterised by increasing commitment towards book publishing, with a view to consolidating a position of leadership in Italy and greater presence on the international market, by expansion of our bookstore franchise network, which will contribute still further to reinforcing our book business.

And finally by building on the brands with the greatest scope for digital development, a prerequisite for a continued presence in such a complex market as magazines.
