A children’s book about architecture and nature, with beautiful illustrations that capture the interest of young and old alike? It would be a shame to resist!

Hundreds of details in the book offer as many keys to open the door to different stories that speak to the youngest and stimulate the oldest.

Matita is a small publishing house of illustrated books that proposes to publish two silent books per year on the themes of architecture, urbanism, design and the environment, aimed at both budding architects and those who are really architects, the chronically curious and lovers of illustrations, young readers and older ones.

The Matita publishing house is inspired by a set of values that it undertakes to respect throughout the production and distribution process of its books:

100% local production. Matita is committed to supporting the entire Italian book industry by outsourcing book production to local printers, renowned for their know-how and excellence.

An eco-responsible policy. The paper chosen to print the books carries the FSC label certifying the sustainable management of the forests from which it comes. Furthermore, by producing the books locally, Matita is committed to drastically reducing the carbon footprint produced by transport.

Solidarity distribution. Convinced that culture can make the world – the world of children and the world they share with adults – a better place, Matita is committed to donating books to associations that welcome children who do not have easy access to reading: hospitals, communities, refugee camps.




Are you passionate about children’s literature, picture books and children’s albums, but never know what to buy?

Every month, Matita promotes One Book Project, the recommendation of a book that meets the same criteria of quality, originality and eco-responsibility that the publishing house has committed to.
