NATIONAL EDITION OF THE MANUSCRIPTS AND DRAWINGS BY LEONARDO DA VINCI
Giunti Editore. Historic origins for an undertaking projected into the future.
Our origins lie directly in the cultural context of the Risorgimento. Indeed Giunti Editore originated in 1840, formed by a group of leading Italian names of the time which included Paggi, Bemporad, Agnelli, Bianchi and Barbčra. Later, acquisitions of important publishing houses such as Editrice Universitaria, Martello, Camunia and the recently acquired Dami group, have given us a catalogue encompassing all types of traditional publishing: adult and children's books, non fiction, school books and cultural magazines, plus a vast production of limited edition publications centred on the world of art, illustrated art books and facsimile reproductions of ancient manuscripts..
A historic catalogue with thousands of titles and unique editions of rare books and ancient manuscripts comprises the tradition behind the Leonardo Project: a corpus of facsimile reproductions of the entire production of drawings and manuscript works by Leonardo, known as the National Edition of Manuscripts and Drawings by Leonardo da Vinci.
Today Giunti Editore boasts a catalogue of over 5000 titles to which
700 new works and 1000 reprints are added yearly. It is made up of over
twenty related companies active at various levels in the world of publishing
Our books and magazines are sold at top bookstores and at the 90 stores in the Giunti al Punto chain; we carry out the printing and make up, including special or limited editions and art reproductions, thanks to our in-house graphics centre, Giunti graphics, and perform sales promotions and marketing in bookstores, shopping malls, computer shops and postal sales through the Giunti distribution channel.
We also publish psycho-diagnostic and psychometric material and offer consulting through Giunti OS special Organisations. We started designing and producing e-publishing as early as 1992 through Giunti Interactive Labs and are involved in sponsored publishing and integrated services for the Florentine museums group, executing a vast production of exhibition catalogues and art books.
Giunti Scuola is market leader in the primary teaching sector, with educational books and magazines (La Vita Scolastica and Scuola dell'Infanzia) for teachers. These represent a way of fast-tracking important training and information campaigns to companies, bodies and institutions.
The Group has a solid history of cultural periodicals. These are sold at newsstands and bookstalls, and by subscription and include Art e dossier, Archeologia Viva, Psicologia Contemporanea, plus four other journals particularly aimed at the teaching profession.
The Renaissance Villa La Loggia has been the Group headquarters for some fifteen years.Via Bolognese 165
