At Giappichelli we believe that fulfilling oneself is a right of every human being and knowledge the best tool to do so. For this reason, since 1921 we have been at the side of those who make study the basis of their university achievement and later their professional careers. We delve into Law, Economics and Political Science. Our aim has always been to provide students, faculty and professionals with the tools they need to successfully achieve their professional goals.
Giappichelli's history is intimately linked to that of Modesto, the man who founded it back in1921. For it is from the character and personality of its founder that the publishing house has drawn inspiration for all the choices that have occurred over the course of almost a century of its lifetime, and it is to him that it still draws upon today in its difficult daily challenges.
Modesto Giappichelli was a humble, caring person, fascinated by the intellectual world of the University of Turin, where he worked as a janitor. Humble, but intelligent. Modest, but creative. He wondered how he could approach the world of science and study that so attracted him. He began by having the luminaries of the time entrust him with their essays, articles and texts. He would proofread and study them in the meantime. Then he would bind and preserve them. So, a little at a time, at the University he became a benchmark for consistency, concentration and attention to detail. A true editor who was forming himself in those roaring years. The work he did was so appreciated by the university environment that on October 5th, together with his son Giuseppe, Modesto opened his first stationery store in Turin, right next to the Rector's Office. One of the most important publishing houses in Italy had just been born.
Giappichelli is Italy's leading legal and economic publishing house in the university and academic fields, and an established player in the professional market. Our numbers speak not only of figures, but of a path based on human relations built over almost 100 years of history, with millions of people who have studied on our works, collaborated with us and decided to write the history of the country.

Since its founding, Giappichelli has always followed certain principles that it judges to be the basis of its business success and to which it constantly refers.
For five generations, the Giappichelli family has been at the helm of the publishing house, and even today the company maintains the intimate, family-oriented character of its founding. In every company, it is the people who make the difference. Ours is a united and reliable, established but dynamic team that is not afraid to renew and improve. Our professionals are carefully chosen not only from among the best editorial consultants and professionals in production, marketing and sales, but also in logistics and administration. Ours is the only publishing house in the industry that has remained family-owned and Italian. And of this we cannot but be proud.
