Founded in the early 1960s by a group of professors from the University of Padua, Marsilio soon moved to Venice where, under the direction of Cesare De Michelis, Professor of Italian at the local university and a group of specialists of different disciplines, it grew from a small scholarly enterprise to become one of the most renowned and widely distributed publishing houses in Italy. A very positive and commendable aspect of Marsilio’s commercial growth has been the maintenance of its highquality essay series in many different disciplines (film studies, Italian literature, sociology, art history and so on) as well as its continued production of scholarly editions of the classics of ancient and modern literatures. Marsilio also devotes several different series to narrative, aiming to promote new writers as well as maintaining already established and critically acclaimed authors.
