Publishing House

Sillabe is a Livorno-based publishing house specialised in art books, exhibition catalogues, guides, critical essays on cultural topics, restoration, art for children and art stationary.

Our publications comprise all Italian and foreign, ancient and modern artistic expressions: from painting, sculpture, architecture to applied arts, cinema, fashion, graphics.

By now, Sillabe occupies an important position in this specific sector, thanks to the prestigious institutions (Soprintendenze, Museums, Galleries, Universities) that commission our books and to well-known contributing authors.

Since March 1998, we have managed the additional services of all State Museums in Florence – Uffizi, Accademia Gallery, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens, San Marco, Medici Chapels, Museo Nazionale del Bargello, Museo dell'Opificio delle Pietre Dure, National Archaeological Museum, publishing for them works with the "Firenze Musei" trademark.

Since 2008 Sillabe manages Siena's Municipal Museums and is present also in Pienza. The bookshops of the Vatican Museums were recently acquired.

Sillabe is able to offer "turnkey" exhibitions: project development, set-up including relating captions, catalogues, billboards/posters, invitations, etc., as well as event management and promotion.

Finally, we wish to highlight that our publications are promoted and distributed throughout Italy by PDE and abroad by Libro Co. Italia.
