Independent bookshops: a model for the future (digital too!)

Simonetta Fiori is a journalist who follows with great competence the editorial-market sector for the newspaper Repubblica. In the last few days, during which the offer of a merging contract on behalf of Mondadori to the book sector of RCS has dominated discussions, she has written an interesting article which has a strong title: Più piccole e con l’anima – la rivincita delle librerie (Smaller and soulful – the redress of bookshops).
