S1 E11: The Italian Publishing Scene Before, During and After the Covid-19 Lockdown. An Interview with Chiara Scaglioni

Welcome to episode 11 of the Make Books Travel podcast. Today’s guest is Chiara Scaglioni, editor of international fiction at Mondadori in Italy.

Chiara and I met a couple of times at various book fairs last few years, and had in fact scheduled to meet at the Mondadori offices in Milan early April this year. That obviously did not happen...

Italy was the first Western country to be hit by the Covid-19 virus, late February, and for a while it was the global epicenter of the pandemic. So of course the coronavirus is an important topic of our conversation. I was especially interested in getting a sense of the current situation in Italy now that the restrictions have for a large part been lifted, bookstores have reopened, and books are being published again.
