In 1993, Edizioni Olivares conceived the “Biblioteca di Bordo” (Library on Board) series, which is designed to offer original “lessons on the fly” on topics relating to art and culture at the gates for the most important business-related destinations at Italy’s major airports. Among the texts of this series are Jean Cocteau’s Il mio primo viaggio (Mon premier voyage) and Edith Wharton’s Paesaggi Italiani (Italian Backgrounds). In 2008, Edizioni Olivares published the bilingual volume Viaggi in Italia – Reisen nach Italien, the fruit of a joint initiative between the publisher and the Italian Embassy in Berlin. It included seven contributions from illustrious scholars, academics, and art historians who provided in-depth presentations of Italy’s most excellent attributes, which were already the subject of a cycle of conferences promoted by the Italian Embassy in Berlin and by the Italian Cultural Institute in Berlin. The result was a “book of intersecting viewpoints” that underscores the role of culture as an essential foundation of European identity.
