A Mondadori Store in the heart of San Giorgio a Cremano

Mondadori Store, the largest network of bookstores in Italy, opens a new store dedicated to the world of books, culture and entertainment in San Giorgio a Cremano (NA) tomorrow on Thursday, 6 June at 6 pm.

The new Mondadori Bookstore – which expands the already extensive Mondadori Store network – shows itself to be a true cultural stronghold for locals, tourists, and especially the younger generation. The bookstore fits into a central and strategic environment, supported by the presence of schools, in line with the network’s objective of spreading culture and promoting reading to the widest possible audience.

“Our family has been carrying on the bookstore tradition for a long time. The first bookstore has a long history rooted in this region. It was founded in 1980 in San Giorgio a Cremano based on the vision of my father, Antonio Marsiglia, who from the very beginning specialised in collecting and selling books of all kinds”, said Daniela Marsiglia, Mondadori Store franchisee. “Since that time, we haven’t stopped growing and developing our business, always looking to meet the different needs of a market that has become increasingly large and demanding, and updating our stores with modern computer systems. Today, thanks to the support of Mondadori Retail, we have been able to open this new store in San Giorgio a Cremano, thus strengthening our role as a cultural outpost throughout the Vesuvian area”, finished the franchisee.

The new bookstore covers 110 m2 and offers a selection of around 10,000 titles, from the great classics to best sellers – including fiction, non-fiction and miscellaneous – with a particular focus on early readers with the We are Junior format, which includes educational games and illustrated books to stimulate children’s imagination with the most fascinating stories, and the department dedicated to manga and comics, Just Comic. Areas dedicated to #BookTok, for the new generation of readers, local publishing, as well as stationery, toys, gift cards and gift boxes, also expand the store’s offer. 

The Mondadori Bookstore in San Giorgio a Cremano is entirely dedicated to readers not only inside the store, thanks to the support of specialised and highly qualified staff, but also online. That’s why customers can get updates via theFacebook and Instagrampages or get in touch with the store through the Mondadoristore.it digital services. With this service, they can check if a book is available, order it and pick it up in the store, choosing from a catalogue of over 1 million titles.

The new Mondadori Bookstore follows the plan for renewal and development of Mondadori Store, the largest bookstore network in Italy, with more than 500 stores in cities and smaller towns. This cultural organisation is active throughout the country, online with the e-commerce site Mondadoristore.it and the book club. In addition to books, its primary service, it also provides entertainment, events and multichannel services, reaching more than 20 million customers every year.

The new bookstore covers 150 m2 and offers a selection of around 18,000 titles, focusing on books, from the great classics to best sellers, without forgetting early readers with the We are Junior format, which includes educational games and illustrated books to stimulate children’s imagination with the most fascinating stories, and the department dedicated to the phenomenon of manga and comics, Just Comics. There is also an area dedicated to stationery, along with gift boxes, gift cards and a selection of eReaders to expand the store’s offer.

Mondadori Bookstore | MA opens a new store in Galleria Umberto I, Naples

On 17 May 2024 from 4.00 pm, one of the largest bookshops in Italy will welcome the public with books, entertainment, culture, nature and sustainability in Galleria Umberto I.

Mondadori Bookstore | MA opens in Naples, at the monumental Galleria Umberto I.

The bookshop overlooks Teatro Salone Margherita, the historic café-chantant, the highest expression of the Neapolitan Belle Époque, in the San Ferdinando district, in the heart of Naples. Featuring furnishings, which harmonise with the Art Nouveau atmosphere of the venue, the bookshop tunes into the period architectural traits, combining them with the corporate philosophy of MA (): environmentally friendly, smart and young. The Japanese philosophical concept can be interpreted as an interval, a pause and an “indefinite space between heaven and earth where man can rest, free the mind and nourish his soul”, says Antonio Serpe, Chief Retail Officer of Mondadori Bookstore | MA Italy. “A time to stop the hectic pace of everyday life, devote oneself to reading, and tune into nature, thus defining an entirely innovative way of understanding, promoting and making culture,” concludes Serpe.

“As Mondadori Retail, we are proud to cooperate in this initiative. The strength of the MA format is based on the conviction that investing in cultural projects capable of adapting to both present and future challenges, fully respecting people and their work, will contribute to the evolution of even consolidated business models,” says Carmine Perna, CEO of Mondadori Retail. “From the outset, Mondadori Retail shared the vision and objectives of creating a cultural and experiential hub at the service of the community. The intention was to make it a venue for the promotion of reading, entertainment, environmental sustainability and culture in its broadest sense,” concludes Perna.

The Mondadori Bookstore | MA is a fusion concept inspired by Japanese culture and translated from simple ideas into concrete projects by the firm Ricciardi Architetti, in partnership with architect Selene Amico. Tall furniture echoing the natural line of tree trunks creates a gallery that envelops visitors, inviting them to breathe in culture and make it their own, both stimulating and satisfying their curiosity. Combined with bonsai trees and sansevierias – not a random choice, as they purify the air from benzene -, everything in the bookshop recalls nature and environmental sustainability, from lamps to design accessories, from architectural choices to the quality of materials – marine poplar wood and recycled iron -, skilfully processed by master carpenters and  Coppola‘s historical partners. Moreover, ecological water paints, used for walls, can reduce the amount of free formaldehyde in the environment by 80%, while floating floors diminish environmental impact concerning the installation of all systems.

“The Galleria project is the highest expression of our philosophy of placing culture and art, in all forms of expression, at the centre of nature, to bring nature as close as possible to people, especially young people. The aim is to offer a deep emotional experience, leaving everybody free to define their own cultural paths and choices, but also to rely on and be advised by our trained staff of booksellers. Naples is the ideal city for this ambitious project as Neapolitans are passionate readers. Hence, we have invested around 1.9 million euro, and created 18 new job openings. The new location will also house a 300 sq.mt. office area for Mondadori Bookstore | MA offices,” says Serpe.

“The one in Naples (Italy’s flagship store) is our twelfth store. It will soon be followed by two new branches in Pavia, precisely one in the heart of the city in Via Cavour, and the other in the province. Thus, we continue our commitment to open bookshops not only in big cities, but also in the suburbs, to enable young people to get closer to reading, thus promoting a better future for them,” says Nello Nunziata, Head of the Store Development Division.

Mondadori Bookstore | MA in Naples covers a surface area of 1,000 sq.mt, with an offer of 148,000 books spanning great classics and best sellers – including fiction, non-fiction and miscellaneous. The We are Junior area includes children’s books, educational games, and illustrated fairy tales to stimulate the imagination of kids. Finally, the innovative section Just Comics, centred on mangas and comics, summons Generation Z. There is also an area dedicated to music and  cinema, with a wide selection of CDs, vinyl records and DVDs. The venue also presents a book buvette area, a free coworking hub, reading space reserved for reading and study, a space for wine tastings, and an exclusive area for events, designed to host some of the leading figures in the local, national and international art scene. Two large touch screen totems allow social interaction, while click & collect, and self checkouts allow customers to buy online on the bookshop’s website and collect in store. Trovalibro, Book Finder, locates the desired book among those available in store, thus making the reader’s experience in the bookshop pleasant and easy.

The store also features a large photo gallery dedicated to the art and contemporary photography of young emerging talents, offering them the opportunity to display their work in the heart of the gallery from time to time. This is the case of Vittorio Cioffi, Michele De Cesare, Gerardo Massaro, Fabio Monk and Davide Orfeo, who will open the exhibition Metamorfosi napoletana.

“The new Mondadori Bookstore | MA has the ambition of becoming a cultural hub that is accessible and usable by the entire Neapolitan community. It will also propose a rich calendar of events studied to offer, from the onset, some important names from the world of culture, who will enliven our gallery,” says Nunziata. “Furthermore, through various initiatives, the bookshop is also very attentive and sensitive to contemporary social and environmental issues,” concludes Nunziata.

MONDADORI BOOKSTORE| MA expresses an innovative, environmentally friendly, young and smart bookstore concept addressing Generation Z and beyond. The philosophy is expressed through architectural choices and the materials used to create them, publishing ideas and initiatives. The environmentally sustainable cultural concept has stemmed from the entrepreneurial background of the Neapolitan-minded creators and Mondadori Retail, the company managing one of the largest bookstore networks in Italy, Mondadori Store. Present throughout Italy with      11 stores in Udine, Gravellona, Arma di Taggia, Milan, Turin, Reggio Emilia, Grosseto, Rome, Salerno, Sestu and Catania.

Mondadori Store opens a bookshop in Alessandria

Mondadori Store, the most extensive network of bookshops in Italy, is opening a new bookshop in Alessandria on Corso Roma, providing the public with a centre entirely dedicated to books, culture and entertainment on one of the city’s main streets.

The new Mondadori Bookstore — managed by booksellers Veronica and Matteo Fusetti — expands the already extensive network of Mondadori Stores in the area, in line with the network’s strategy of spreading culture and promoting reading in our free time, creating an interactive place to meet and a true cultural centre in one of the most important industrial and commercial areas of Piedmont.

‘For about 30 years, my sister and I have worked passionately as booksellers, with the conviction that culture should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their background,’ says Matteo Fusetti, a Mondadori Store franchisee. ‘Turning what you love into a profession is a privilege that should not be wasted, but rather put at the service of the public. We also like to think that anyone who comes into our bookshop can find something they weren’t expecting and be happily surprised,’ Fusetti says.

The new bookshop covers 200 square metres and offers a selection of 15,000 titles, from the great classics to best sellers, including fiction, non-fiction and other genres. Special attention is reserved for younger readers with the We are Junior format — which includes educational games and picture books to stimulate their imagination with the most engaging stories — and the department dedicated to manga and comics, Just Comic. The store also has areas dedicated to #BookTok, for new generations of readers, local publishing, stationery, toys, gift cards and gift boxes.

The Mondadori Bookstore in Alessandria also serves readers online: customers can keep up to date through the Facebook and Instagram pages. They can also contact the store through Mondadoristore.it digital services to check if a book is available, order it and pick it up in store, choosing from a catalogue of over 1 million titles.

The new Mondadori Bookstore follows the plan to renew and develop Mondadori Store, the largest bookstore network in Italy, with more than 500 shops in cities and smaller towns. This cultural organisation is active throughout the country, online with the e-commerce site Mondadoristore.it and the book club.

A Pop up store arrives in the Mondadori Stores that’s dedicated to Chico, the internet’s most beloved dog

For the release of the book, A tutto Chico, Mondadori Duomo and other Mondadori Bookstores will feature corner shops entirely dedicated to fans of the world of the irresistible four-legged friend.

Mondadori Store, the largest network of bookstores in Italy, is launching an initiative aimed at anyone who wants to dive into the world of the Internet’s most beloved dog to celebrate the release of Francesco Taverna’s second book – A tutto Chico (Fabbri Editori) – and share their love for their four-legged friends.

From 6 to 12 May, Mondadori Duomo will be Chico’s home: it will host a pop-up store dedicated to the world of the irresistible little blonde dog that has conquered the Internet, where fans will have the chance to buy not only pre-sale copies of the book but also exclusive products: from dinner sets to collars for little four-legged friends to cute gifts like t-shirts, mugs and beach towels designed especially for their owners. The corner shop will also be livened up by engaging activities so fans can dive into the special world of Chico: they’ll also be able to leave a letter for the adorable little dog and take funny photos for social media. There will also be a machine for customising dog tags that can be used as key rings or gift ideas.

“Chico and I are excited to open the doors of our house to fans for the first time: everyone will be able to experience the place where our adventures happen. It’ll be a cosy and familiar place, where you’re sure to meet many other like-minded enthusiasts”, said author Francesco Taverna. “Inside the pop-up store, you’ll be able to experience the A tutto Chico world: take a photo in the Chico Giangol, relaxing in our little garden and…well, I won’t say another word, except to say that you’re all welcome”.

The author and father of the irresistible little dog, Francesco Taverna, will be there every day, at different times, at the Mondadori Duomo bookstore, to share stories and fun facts about the world of Chico and meet his fans. The unmissable and end event will be held on Saturday 11 May from 3 p.m. with a special book signing.

And for those who aren’t from Milan, exhibition corners just for Chico and his world will be set up in 6 other Italian Mondadori Bookstores from 7 to 31 May: those in Lombardy in Arese CC Il Centro, Lonato CC Il Leone Shopping Centre, Rozzano CC Fiordaliso, Vimercate CC TorriBianche and those in Romea CC Nave de Vero in Veneto and Florence CC I Gigli in Tuscany.

The store expands the already extensive Mondadori Store network across the area, in line with the network’s strategy of spreading culture and promoting reading, creating an interactive meeting place and a real cultural organisation, especially for the young students who frequent the area: a strategic project for the Ufita Valley area and the Mezzogiorno.

“I’m happy to bring this project to life with the Mondadori Store network of bookstores, since we share the same goals: to make bookstores standards for culture and entertainment, satisfying the tastes of a wide public and focusing on the quality of the purchasing experience, multi-channel services and events, always putting the needs of our reading customers at the heart of our work”, said franchisee Nico Salanti, now at his fourth opening in Italy, after those in Nocera Inferiore, Cava de’ Tirreni and Sarno.

The first Mondadori Bookstore | MA arrives in Liguria: opens today at La Riviera Shopville in Arma di Taggia

The bookstore – with its green, young and smart concept – is open to the public from 10.00 am.

Arma di Taggia (IM) is where Mondadori Bookstore | MA will plant its eleventh Italian flag, creating a new cultural centre with respect for eco-sustainability. The format is inspired by the Japanese philosophical concept of MA (): “an undefined space between heaven and earth where man can empty his mind and nourish his soul“, where he can, therefore, free himself from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and rest his mind. A whole new way of creating, disseminating and promoting culture. The bookstore has a green, eco-friendly impact, from the materials used for its construction — marine poplar, recycled iron and sustainable water-based paints — to the design itself — tall, curved furniture reminiscent of tree trunks, bonsai trees and sansevieria and that will make its mark on the 170 m² surface area.

The new Mondadori Bookstore | MA offers future readers a choice of more than 14,000 titles, from the great classics to best sellers – including fiction, non-fiction and miscellaneous – with areas reserved for the youngest readers – We are Junior – featuring interactive books, educational games and illustrated fairy tales to stimulate their imagination and curiosity. The department dedicated to manga and comics – Just Comics – which gives a nod to Generation Z, is not to be missed.
