For us, sustainability is a commitment that goes beyond the office. In fact, through initiatives focused on home-work travel, we try to meet the needs of all our employees and contribute to reducing environmental impact.

As the Mondadori Group, we have activated a series of services and conventions
– Company shuttles to connect our offices with train stations and metro lines;
– Preferential season tickets for the use of public transport;
– A carpooling platform to make private car journeys more efficient;
– Discounts on car-sharing services and e-bike or e-scooter rentals.

In particular, we have recently signed an agreement with the micro-mobility service Lime, in synergy with the Segrate Municipality, to provide a pick-up and drop-off point for vehicles near Palazzo Mondadori and at other strategic points in the area, such as the railway station. This is an important project based on public-private cooperation to achieve a common goal: promoting sustainable mobility.

This is why we are constantly striving to improve our actions, also involving our employees through periodic surveys on the subject, which help us to gather opinions and suggestions. And our colleagues are happy to contribute, answering the various questions in large numbers each time.

We look forward to welcoming you to the new Mondadori bookshop in Milan.

In the heart of the city, in Via Marghera, a new bookshop has opened its doors. An ideal refuge for those who love reading, culture and entertainment, our store is located in the centre of a lively shopping area.

A team of five experienced booksellers is on hand to help anyone who enters the bookshop to find the perfect book among the more than 13,000 titles on offer, from the great classics to the latest bestsellers. But that’s not all: readers will also find stationery, gift boxes and gift vouchers to suit all tastes, as well as a “We Are Junior” area with books and educational games for children, and a section dedicated to comics and manga.

The Mondadori bookshop in via Marghera is also waiting for you on Instagram and Facebook to keep you up to date with all the news, initiatives and events planned. Starting with the first important date: the signing of the book ‘Io sono Chico’ with the author Francesco Taverna on 2 February. On Saturday 3 February and Sunday 4 February there will be interactive workshops for children in collaboration with Leo Scienza, an association dedicated to popularising science, the environment and culture.

Once again this year, we are supporting those people in our Group who are most exposed to the uncertainties of the current macroeconomic environment. We are doing this by offering a bonus of €1,000 in the form of vouchers or social credits to employees with an annual salary threshold of €35,000 gross.

“Together with our Chairman, Marina Berlusconi, we have decided to support our employees with an exceptional economic contribution to help them maintain their purchasing power,” commented our CEO, Antonio Porro.

This contribution is also a further thank you for the important results achieved in recent months. A concrete gesture that is also the result of a constant and constructive dialogue with the trade unions and that adds to the many other initiatives that have been launched to meet the needs of all #NoiDellaMondadori.

We are pleased to announce that the Mondadori Group is one of the winners in the “Innovation” category of the SAP Quality Awards 2023, the annual prize awarded by SAP to business projects that stand out for their innovation and benefits.

This award recognises the quality of our “BI Purchases&Operations” project, which, by implementing a solution entirely in the cloud, has made it possible for the first time to set up monitoring and data discovery tools, both operational and managerial, that enable the company to manage the end-to-end process of purchasing and industrial budgeting for the production of books in the retail sector.

In addition to the IT department and the Trade Operations department, SAP and SDG Group also collaborated on this project, providing valuable support in the application of implementation best practices, project governance and the implementation phase.

The colleagues who worked on the project received the award during SAP Now 2023, the most important annual event that SAP Italia dedicates to its business community.

Pictured is the team that worked on the winning project. From left to right: Gianluca Traettino, Chiara Marino, Vincenzo Meduri, Filippo Guglielmone, Rosalba Rossato, Alberto Zangarini, Glauco Brambilla, Cristina Cavagna, Flavia Massaglia.

Significant increase in profitability and +12% increase in EBITDA Adjusted.

The centenary of Italo Calvino’s birth continues with two exhibitions in Rome and Genoa.

“Favoloso Calvino. Il mondo come opera d’arte. Carpaccio, de Chirico, Gnoli, Melotti e gli altri”: the major exhibition in Rome, curated by Mario Barenghi, will remain open until Feb. 4, 2024 at the Scuderie del Quirinale. Visitors will be able to immerse themselves in a visual journey that, with more than 400 works, offers a closer look at the life and literary production of one of the leading figures of twentieth-century literature. The exhibition is organised by the Scuderie del Quirinale in collaboration with Electa editore.

At the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, “Calvino Cantafavole”, an exhibition curated by Eloisa Morra and Luca Scarlini, opens at Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, in the spaces of the Loggia degli Abati. The Genoese exhibition is a tribute to Calvino’s relationship with the world of fairy tales and will remain open until April 7, 2024. Supported by the Liguria Region, the City of Genoa and the Palazzo Ducale Foundation, the exhibition is organised by Electa editore in collaboration with the Scuderie del Quirinale.

The exhibition will be accompanied by many new publications, from the catalogues of the exhibitions to new titles dedicated to the world of Italo Calvino.
