Adriano Salani Editore
Founded in Florence in 1862, Adriano Salani Editore is one of the oldest publishing houses still operating in Italy. Salani has made a name for itself in the world of children’s books by publishing some of the best mainstream fiction and juvenile literature, and creating series that have fired the imagination of whole generations of youthful readers, such as “La Biblioteca dei miei ragazzi” which was launched in the first half of the 20th century to make the finest classics available to young readers.
In 1986, Salani was acquired by Longanesi & C. and made a comeback in children’s publishing with the launch of “Gli Istrici”, a series devoted to the translation of prestigious international authors, such as Roald Dahl, Astrid Lingred and Christine Nöstlinger for the Italian market. With a list that numbers over 1,500 titles, built on understanding and observing the world through children’s eyes, Salani remains an innovator in the field of children’s books and a firm favourite with readers. Recently the house has also started to expand its offering by signing up successful writers of adult fiction.
