  • IBA at the Salone del Libro 2024 in Turin

    Salone del Libro 2024

    Like every year, IBA attended the Rights centre at the Salone del Libro in Turin, Italy, from 9th to 11th May.

    The Salone is one of the most significant book fairs in Italy and it involves professionals working in the fascinating field of publishing from all over the world, but also readers and culture lovers.

    As usual, IBA attended the Rights center of the fair, representing some of the most creative Italian publishing houses (CSA Editrice, Planet Book, Aporema Edizioni, Armando Curcio Editore…) and presenting their books to foreign publishing houses and editors.

    IBA had meetings with about 25 publishing houses and literary agencies from all over the world (mainly from Iran, Germany and Switzerland) to whom it could present their titles. It was a profitable opportunity to know more about the interesting books proposed by other publishing houses as well.

    As always, the authors that aroused the foreign publishers’ interest the most were Elena Mora, Mere Oie Kalle, Philip Osbourne, Alessandra Cinardi and Giulia Falcini, but also our detective stories writer, Cristiano De Sciciolo with his Commissario Maselli investigations, just to cite a few names.

    We hope these new meetings will lead to successful exchanges in the near future.

  • Happy World Book and Copyright Day!

    World Book Day 2024

    World Book and Copyright Day is a celebration to promote the enjoyment of books and reading. Each year, on 23 April, celebrations take place all over the world to recognize the scope of books - a link between the past and the future, a bridge between generations and across cultures. On this occasion, UNESCO and the international organizations representing the three major sectors of the book industry - publishers, booksellers and libraries, select the World Book Capital for a year to maintain, through its own initiatives, the impetus of the Day’s celebrations. 

    23 April is a symbolic date in world literature. It is the date on which several prominent authors, William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died. This date was a natural choice for UNESCO's General Conference, held in Paris in 1995, to pay a world-wide tribute to books and authors on this date, encouraging everyone to access books.

  • Cairo International Book Fair 2024

    The Cairo International Book Fair stands as a major cultural event in the Middle East. Since its inception in 2006, it has consistently held the position of the world’s second-largest book fair, only eclipsed by Frankfurt’s esteemed counterpart. Each year, it draws roughly 2 million visitors, making it a significant literary event.

    This book fair began in 1969, coinciding with Cairo’s millennium celebration. The Minister of Culture at the time, Tharwat Okasha, had the vision to create a grand cultural event. He entrusted Suhair Al-Qalamawi, a notable writer and researcher, with organizing the first Cairo International Book Fair. In honor of Al-Qalamawi’s crucial role, the 2008 fair recognized her as the Person of the Year.

    Over time, the fair has evolved. Traditionally held during the mid-year school break, it used to conclude at the end of January at Nasr City’s Exhibition Grounds. However, by 2019, the event transitioned to the Egypt International Exhibition Center, situated in the burgeoning New Cairo. The fair now runs for 12 days, attracting publishers from the Arab world and beyond.

    A key highlight of the Cairo International Book Fair is its diverse offerings. Beyond the vast selection of books, the fair includes cultural seminars, cinema screenings, theater performances, art exhibitions, and music concerts. This variety ensures the fair appeals to a wide range of interests and artistic tastes.

    The fair’s influence goes beyond literature. It fosters cultural exchange and ignites intellectual dialogues. It offers a platform for diverse writers, publishers, and artists. With its rich heritage, the Cairo International Book Fair remains a key center for Middle Eastern literature and culture.

    The fair takes place at the Egypt International Exhibition Centre in New Cairo, from January 25 to February 6. Operating hours are from 10 am to 8 pm daily, extending to 9 pm on Thursdays and Fridays. Tickets are priced at EGP 5, and available on the fair’s official website and at the door. The fair encompasses five halls over 80,000 square meters, hosting 1,200 publishing houses from 70 countries and 5,250 exhibitors. This year’s guest country is Norway, with Egyptologist Salim Hassan and children’s book novelist Yaqub Sharuni honored as Persons of the Year. The program features 500 events.

    Please, visit the Cairo International Book Fair's official website for all the details and to get your tickets.

  • "Mio figlio. L'amore che non ho fatto in tempo a dirgli" wins an international contest in London

    Mio figlio

    The Italian book “Mio figlio. L’amore che non ho fatto in tempo a dirgli” by Marco Termenana published in 2021 by CSA Editrice has been awarded the first prize at the first edition of “The alchemy of poetry – Scrittori italiani a Londra” international contest by the “Irdi – Destinazionearte” Association.

    The jury was chaired by the literary critic, professor Eugenia Tabellione.

    The aim of the contest was to award the best Italian works (published and unpublished) in different categories (poetry, novels, essays).

    The prize-giving ceremony will be held at Hone Books Galore (Stepherd’s Bush Market, Shop #24, London) on January, 26th at 6 pm (London Time). The event will be hosted by Mrs. Grazia Depedri and will be live streamed online from the Facebook and Instagram pages of the book shop.

    Mio figlio. L’amore che non ho fatto in tempo a dirgli” is a true story that deals with delicate and important current issues, such as gender identity, love, the role of families in the lives of young people and suicide.

    The book (which has already won several national prizes) is based on the true story of Giuseppe’s suicide in Milan, in the night between the 24th and the 25th of May, 2014. Giuseppe was the 21-year-old son of the author. The aim of the story is to honour the boy’s memory and to help other parents to understand their children and to orient themselves in such difficult situations. The book analyses the causes of youth problems that can lead to suicide, through fragments of the boy’s short life, combined with moments of life of his father’s present. The backbone of the novel is divided into two main themes: gender identity and youth problems leading to self-destruction. Giuseppe was very reserved and introverted, to the point of choosing the voluntary isolation of hikikomori; he was a tormented kid, like many other kids these days, with huge doubts about his identity, to the point that he had created a second identity for himself: a young girl called Noemi. Bipolarity and self-isolation led him to not being able to see a future for himself and to ending it all. A book for parents, teachers, psychologists, educators and readers aged 13 years and above.

    Marco Termenana is represented in Italy and abroad by IBA, which congratulates Marco Termenana on his latest success. We are confident that this international award can be another great opportunity to raise awareness on this crucial topic abroad as well.
    Foreign rights for this book are available for all countries. Publishers interested in the purchase of the rights of “Mio figlio” can get in touch with the Foreign Rights department of IBA.

    Moreover, two big Italian film studios have commissioned the journalist and screenwriter Sarah Panatta to write the script for a possible film adaptation of the book.



    The author, Marco Termenana, Giuseppe’s father, has a degree in Political Science. He was born in Venice in 1958 – even though he has southern origins – and he started working as a journalist in Salerno. Since 1980 he has been a member of the Italian Journalist Order. In 1982, he moved to Milan, where he worked as a press adviser for companies in the field of informatics and high technology. At the moment, he works as an executive for a leading Italian company and travels throughout Italy to spread knowledge, to raise awareness on the topics covered on his book and to share his own personal experience in order to help young people and parents to deal with similar situations.

  • What people read around the world

    In the world of literature, there are many different types of books. Diverse genres cater to different consumers to meet a range of needs. Poetry appeals to certain readers, while mystery and romance appeal to others. But what are the most popular book genres and what do people read across the world?

    • Romance, classic, and poetry books are at the top of the list in popularity among readers worldwide.
    • You are far more likely to find classic books in the homes of English-speaking countries.
    • Horror books are the most popular book genre in Latin countries, whereas fantasy books are the most popular in Europe.
    • Asians searched on the internet for “poetry books” more than any other book genre.
    • The thriller novel genre rules supreme in Dutch-speaking countries, whereas Norwegian readers choose crime fiction above other genres.

  • IBA present at the Salone del Libro 2023 in Turin

    Like every year, IBA could not miss the important event of the Salone del Libro in Turin which took place from 18th to 22nd May at the Lingotto area.
    The Salone is one of the most significant book fairs in Italy and it involves professionals working in the fascinating field of publishing from all over the world, but also readers and culture lovers.
    As usual, IBA attended the Rights center of the fair, representing some of the most creative Italian publishing houses (CSA Editrice, Planet Book, Aporema Edizioni, Armando Curcio Editore…) and presenting their books to foreign publishing houses and editors.
    This year was particularly interesting and fruitful, as many publishers (mainly from South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Canada and many more) showed their interest towards some of the titles presented by IBA. In particular, they were impressed by Elena Mora’s young age, success and works, or by Giulia Falcini’s manuscript about the Nushu, by the fantasy of Alessandra Cinardi with her “Vita” trilogy, by the authenticity of Angelina Brasacchio with her “Tales from the south” (already published in the UK) and “Tales from the oil mill”, but also by some books dealing with contemporary central issues like “Gaslighting”, “The strategic parent” and “The path”. These are just some examples of the books proposed abroad, so it is possible to assume that the negotiations started on those days at the Rights center will hopefully lead to some satisfactory results in terms of rights selling in the next few months.
