Edizioni del Capricorno is a publisher specialized in nonfiction with more than twenty years of activity. An important part of the catalogue promotes ethical trekking and tourism as key elements of the current social context, seen as ways to rediscover the cultural heritage throughout actual visits to historically relevant sites such as alpine fortifications, past battle fields, Alpini’s routes and the valleys in which important events took place.
All the books present a rich and original iconographic setting realized by the use of striking images, chosen with the purpose of creating an alternative way to read the trekking routes by images only.
Other titles of the catalogue are about Piedmont and Turin, described in their art, architecture, the famous gastronomy, and the breakthroughs that changed and formed them.
In the firm belief that present time can only be understood through the past, a section of the catalogue concerns about modern and contemporary history, specifically from Napoleonic era to the Seventies.
Moreover, during its two decades activity, Edizioni del Capricorno developed studies and market researches in order to mix its traditional editorial products with the new digital and multichannel ones, aiming to offer its historical catalogue to new potential readers.
