add editore is an independent publishing house with over 100 titles in its catalogue and which was set up in Turin in 2010.

The focus of the editorial plan is on social non-fiction, biographies and pamphlets.

The essays deal with freedom, rights, education, development, environment, frontiers, prisons and politics, but also topics such as sport, adventure and fashion. They convey the voices of men and women from various world cultures.

The “exclamation marks” are controversial pamphlets which say their piece forcefully, but which also provide much food for thought: Time for Outrage! by Stéphane Hessel was one of the publishing successes of recent years.

The biographies provide stories of people who have made excellence their byword. Lives, in their extraordinary simplicity.

The selection of titles under preparation opens up to new inspirations and directions, with a look at Asian cultures, scientific dissemination, literary essays which blend knowledge and disciplines in a vision that is open to the increasingly clear demand for multiculturalism and dialogue.

We have published works by farmer and philosopher Pierre Rabhi, entrepreneur and witness to justice Pino Masciari and juvenile prison teacher Mario Tagliani; we have recounted the story of Alberto Manzi, the teacher who after the Second World War taught Italian to Italians via TV, and the stories of Pavel Nedved and Ettore Messina. We have described the life of Shaul Ladany, from Bergen-Belsen to Munich ’72, told the story of the La Plata rugby team that was practically wiped out by the Argentinian dictatorship in ’78, discovered US humorist Will Cuppy and learned about Lilian Thuram’s black stars.
