Open Factory Edizioni Srl is an independent brand in the publishing landscape, based on solid expertise and experience, with a mission to promote and spread the passion for “telling ideas” through facts.

Creativity and talent promotion guide our decisions, while attention and accurate management of publishing processes and promotion strategies support the daily work of Open Factory Edizioni, a factory open to experimentation, a think tank ready to take new directions through the intensive sharing of concepts and ideas among all involved actors: editorial staff, collaborators, scientific committee, companies.

A cultural mine of initiatives, from paper to Web, Open Factory Edizioni has a vision of the enterprise as “handicraft industry”, where knowledge (from initial concepts to production and sales rules) becomes “craft”, a job to be handed down to young generations, committed to building a better world.
