Lantana Editore is a new Roman independent publishing house, settled in the Esquilino, the vibrant and multi-ethnical part of town.

* Lantana is the name of a film by Ray Lawrence (2001), a sophisticated and unsettling thriller which invites to reflect on this simple concept : understanding is more useful than judging. Thus, we want our books to spark off reflection and thinking : through novels and non fiction essays, we try to get the reader to question the world as it is today.

* The lantana is also the name a colorful and invasive plant. Our logo represents it, as an hommage to creativity, to democracy, and to « bibliodiversity ».

We propose four collections :

LE STELLE : Fiction by contemporary italian and foreign writers, autobiographies, memoirs.

GAZOMETRO : Non fiction, in-depth essays on present burning issues.

LANTANA.DOC : Books + DVD, a multimedia collection about key figures of art and culture.

LANTANA JUNIOR : Children’s literature, an original collection for kids, which will begin with The Floods, a crazy and not so politically correct series about a family of witches and wizards.

Under Alessandra Gambetti’s direction, who brings to the project years of experience in the publishing field, Lantana tries to be attentive to quality as well as to the public’s demands.
