Mondadori - Statistics & Facts

Arnoldo Mondadori Editore, known as Mondadori, is the biggest publishing company in Italy, publishing both books and magazines. Founded in 1907 by Arnoldo Mondadori, the publishing company began publishing a magazine called "Luce!". It was not until 1912, that the first book was published. Mondadori is mainly known as a book publishing company; under the Mondadori name, there are over 30 publishing houses and related imprints in the book sector. In 2014, the subsidiary company Mondadori Libri S.p.A. was established to group the Mondadori books segment and the pre-existing publishers Giulio Einaudi Editore, Sperling & Kupfer, Piemme, Electa, and Mondadori Education. In April 2016, Rizzoli Libri was bought by the company and added to Mondadori Libri S.p.A. In 2019, Mondadori covered about 26 percent of the book publishing market in Italy.

Mondadori boasts a great number of published and digital magazines, including fashion, cooking, design, science, and education. This makes them the leading magazine publisher in Italy, with an almost 29 percent market share in 2019 in terms of circulation. Mondadori also publishes the number one weekly magazine by copies sold, TV Sorrisi e Canzoni. However, in recent years, the group has been making efforts to reposition itself on the market. Their goal is to expand on the book publishing side of their activity rather than in magazines. It was also for this reason that, in July 2019, Mondadori sold its French magazines division, Mondadori France, to Reword Media.

Mondadori has an important online presence. It owns many of the most popular Italian lifestyle websites and online magazines such as the cooking website Giallo Zafferano, the women’s magazine Donna Moderna and the travel blog Moreover, in recent years Mondadori launched its e-commerce website, Mondadori Store, which is one of the leading online bookstore platforms in Italy.
