Paramica, a children’s book publisher founded in Milan in 2005, began with a series of e-books for young children on the subject of music, produced in both Italian and English. After two years devoted exclusively to e-books, we began producing printed books in 2007. We published eight volumes, including books about musical instruments, the works of Rossini, Vivaldi, and Bellini, and three lyric operas, available in Italian and English editions. In 2008 we launched our most popular collection, “Discovering opera with Babetta.” From the beginning it was a great success. Each beautifully illustrated book tells the story of a well-known Italian opera and includes text in four languages. In our books nothing is left to chance: simple, easy-to-read text is combined with original, full-color art, eco-friendly paper, high-quality graphics, and the best Italian printing. In less than three months, this series won the esteem of the reading public and space in the largest bookshops of Italian and foreign opera theatres.
