Books in Sardinia

The Books in Sardinia portal fosters international cultural exchanges with a view to promoting the translation and wider distribution of books published in Sardinia, overcoming the natural boundaries of a beautiful island that is rich in traditions and culture.

The portal serves as a major showcase through its online catalogue and the short profiles of the works themselves.
It is a platform managed by the AES, the trade association for publishers that have their registered offices in Sardinia and that publish books, magazines, maps and multimedia products (ebooks and epubs), which are distributed via bookshops and/or commercial channels, in Italian, Sardinian and the other linguistic variants found in Sardinia.

The aim is to become a European network that makes the most of the heritage of the various communities of the Mediterranean, giving Sardinia a cultural centrality to match its geographical centrality.

The portal is intended to afford easy, direct opportunities to negotiate rights between trade professionals, authors and publishers. Through the reserved section, it even offers the possibility to access "samples" of the works highlighted by the publishers.

Trade professionals interested in acquiring translation rights can use the registration procedure by filling out the relevant form.
