With its head office in Florence, Giunti Editore comes from a very long publishing tradition: in 1883 it published “The Adventures of Pinocchio” by Collodi for the first time.
Today through the catalogues of its imprints for children (Giunti, Dami Editore, Fatatrac, Edizioni del Borgo, Editoriale Scienza, Disney, Lucas, Marvel, Pon Pon edizioni), its imprints for adults (Giunti, Bompiani, Demetra, De Vecchi Editore, Giorgio Nada Editore, Slow Food Editore,) one special imprint for primary schools (Giunti Scuola), and an imprint for Junior and Senior High School (Giunti e TVP Editori), Giunti Editore has become a market leader in many fields.
Giunti Editore has over 8,000 titles total in its catalogues (65% Adults, 45% Children), and publishes approximately 500 new titles per year. Giunti publications are sold at the top bookstores by a team of 150 of its own agents; when added to the 190 directly owned bookstores “Giunti al Punto” is the largest Italian chain based on number of stores.
Giunti Group is one of the most dynamic companies in Italy: the marketing and financial analysis firm, Databank, has named it as a Company to Watch in 2015. Moreover, in 2015 Giunti Editore was once again the third-largest publisher in Italy after Mondadori and RCS for total revenue. Giunti Scuola is also the top publisher in Italy for primary school books.
Internationally, Giunti Editore maintains relationships with publishers in over 50 countries. In recent years thousands of original titles have been licensed to hundreds of foreign publishers across the globe, resulting in the publication of millions of copies of Italian fiction, non fiction, illustrated titles and children’s books in almost every language. In addition, Giunti International Division exports Italian book products to more than 40 countries throughout the world.
