Our publishing house ‘OTIUM AC NEGOTIUM’ Edizioni Felice de Bernardi appeared on the book market in May 1995 with its first title: ‘Il Test Stelle e Onde’ (The Star and Wave test) by Ursula Avè-Lallemant, which started the collection ‘Materie Prime’ (Raw matters).
This work in its Italian edition is adopted as study book during refresher courses for teachers and was presented to the public on TV.
Going on with the original “philosophy of life and readings”, during the following years new collections each of them having its own logo, were born.
