We started as a publishing house in 1981, although the passion for
collecting rare books has been a constant in our lives.
In 2005 we move from publishing to the pure books trade and we never stopped.
Now, to celebrate our 40th anniversary, we set this new website up, offering here
only the better books we have in our stock.

The Owner

Francesco Magnani

Francesco took over the family business in 2020, after about 15 years following his father (and founder of the bookstore) Romolo.
His adventure in the books trade started as responsible for the warehouse, the shippings and the cataloging of the stock.
Year after year, his knowledge about rare books improved consistently and he’s been able to manage the shop since 2015.
He’s also Senior Expert Books for a well known international online auction house, coordinating and improving the department’s performances.
