Newton Compton editori
Newton Compton is an independent publishing house founded in Rome in 1969 by Vittorio Avanzini, who is still at the helm, now alongside his son Raffaello. Over time, Newton Compton has published thousands of titles. The house is known for its fairly priced reissued classics and one of Italy’s strongest catalogues of genre fiction. The catalogue also includes essays and handbooks. Newton Compton has published many extraordinary best-sellers, including, in recent years, historical fiction by Marcello Simoni and Matteo Strukul, highly successful also on international level, such as the novel Storia di una famiglia perbene by Rosa Ventrella, sold in 20 countries worldwide.
