In the 1960s, Piero Dami began Dami Editore, a family-owned publishing company that focused on selling rights internationally in addition to publishing children's books in Italy. In the late 1970s Andrea Dami joined his father and the company grew increasingly more successful.
Dami has been present at the major book fairs for many years, including Frankfurt, Bologna and BookExpo America in the United States. On the international rights market Dami titles are published in close to 30 languages, in more than 70 countries.
Giunti Editore, based in Florence, has been distributing Dami books in Italy for over 25 years. In 2001 Giunti purchased 'Dami Editore' and this became the imprint for Dami books in Italy.
In 2008, Dami International joined Giunti and is now a part of the Giunti International Division.
Today Andrea Dami continues to create new titles and games for the Dami catalogue, in addition to successful characters with a global reach such as Tip the Mouse. The editors of Dami Editore in Florence are constantly adding new titles to the Dami line by taking advantage of the richly illustrated Dami archive of images and characters. The result is that Dami International presents two collections of new titles each year, in Bologna and Frankfurt.
Dami International continues to strive to bring quality children's books to young readers everywhere via its well-known artists Tony Wolf & Matt Wolf and its many colorfully illustrated titles.
