Our books travel the world
We live in a time of great political and social changes, of liquid boundaries and cultural contaminations. This context makes it inevitable that literatures rapidly lose their national connotation and gain a more extended European trait.
Over the past 15 years, we have established our leadership by reaching a wider audience which is not confined to the Italian borders. We opened branch offices in the main European capitals. Both our bestselling writers and emerging authors are published simultaneously in Italy, Spain, Germany and, from now on, in England as well. France and the United States are our next goals.

Our international projects
With Primidieci, a book that celebrates Italian excellence around the world, we introduce one of the many initiatives aimed to the European publishing market. The American edition was followed by Primidieci UK, a book dedicated to the top personalities that best represent Italy in the United Kingdom.
“I cherish PrimiDieci for their idea to celebrating Italian excellence around the world. Only by sharing the stories of men and women who made it, future generations will be encouraged to believe in their full potential. “

Emerging authors as told by the protagonists of our times

Summary of the editorial proposal developed for The Shadow – The Death of the Eagle by Mauro Cavallini
Editorial team meeting held on February 20th 2019
Our proposal includes a customized editorial intervention, aimed to enhance the literary and communicative traits of the manuscript entitled The Shadow – The death of the Eagle, a book we have selected for its several interesting prompts. The most distinctive characteristics have been discussed between the author, Mauro Cavallini, and Giorgia Grasso, the editor who was responsible for the evaluation of the manuscript. The telephone call meeting took place today, Wednesday 20 February 2019.
To optimize the distribution of the work, the editor, together with the press office and the marketing manager of Europe Books, has developed a high-impact marketing and publicity campaign, which includes several targeted interventions including: participation in television and radio broadcasts, the launch of an Audiobook, the participation to the main international book fairs together with the publisher and the dedicated press office work; The Shadow – The death of the eagle, moreover, would benefit from a distribution, which covers about 5,000 selling points spread throughout the territory.
In addition to the paperback, Europe Books publishes the e-book version of the manuscript, compatible with all devices and distributed over 200 channels (Amazon, iBooks, La Feltrinelli, Mondadori, L’Unità, Il Fatto Quotidiano, Rizzoli , etc.).
In the event of a publication, the revenue of the sales will contribute to the financing of writing workshops called “LetterariaMente”, aimed to patients treated by the Mental Health Services. This initiative will be mentioned on the back cover of the book and will have no financial repercussions on the percentage reserved for the copyright. The latter will in fact be deducted from the revenues of the publishing house.
This editorial proposal, while inevitably requesting the purchase of a specific number of copies, establishes, upon the editor’s proposal and following the guidelines of the Regulation for a quality co-production, the reimbursement of the contribution paid upon the reaching of the 500 copies sold.
