Thursday, 14 September, Mondadori Store, the largest network of bookstores in Italy, will open a new bookstore in Rome in the heart of the residential neighbourhood of Via Salaria 54. To celebrate the occasion, starting at 6 pm, Marcello Veneziani – journalist and author of numerous essays on philosophy and political culture – will be there to meet readers and sign copies of his book “Vico dei miracoli”,’published by Rizzoli.
The new Mondadori Bookstore covers an area of 140 square metres spread over two floors and three storefronts located on the ground floor. The new opening will expand the already extensive Mondadori Store network in the area, making a new hub dedicated to the world of books, culture and entertainment available to the public.
This is the first opening of journalist Giulia Di Martino’s Mondadori Store affiliate, fulfilling a lifelong dream of hers. “For personal reasons, I moved to Rome from Sicily, where I worked for a local TV station. However, this unexpected change in my life has allowed me to focus on the dream I’ve had since I was a child: to have my own bookstore that could become a meeting place for all the inhabitants of the area, especially the many families that populate the neighbourhood, and to stand as a real cultural hub for the area,” said Giulia di Martino.
A team of experienced anthropologists will support the affiliate in providing the best service to customers at the new Mondadori Bookstore. The bookstore is envisioned as an additional service offered to the local community, making it a meeting place for families and schools in the area.
The new Mondadori Bookstore offers a wide selection of titles, approximately 12,000, ranging from the great classics to fiction, not forgetting young readers with the We are Junior format, which includes educational and illustrated games to stimulate the imagination with interesting stories, and the innovative department dedicated to manga and comics, Just Comics. Also expanding the store’s offerings are areas dedicated to stationery, toys, music, Kobo e-readers, gift cards and gift boxes.
The Mondadori Bookstore in Via Salaria 54 in Rome also serves readers online: customers can keep up-to-date through its Facebook and Instagram pages. They will also be able to get in touch with the bookstore through the Mondadoristore.it digital services to check whether a book is available, order it and pick it up in the store or have it delivered to their home, choosing from a catalogue of more than 1 million titles.
