As reported by Porter Anderson in Publishing Perspectives, the Italian book market shows strong resilience in the first-nine-month statistics for 2021 — coming in strongly ahead of 2019’s numbers as well as those of 2020. AIE (Association of Italian Publishers) president, Ricardo Franco Levi, states that this is “a trend that we had already observed at the end of 2020 and then in the first half of the year, and now has been consolidated.”
