Edizioni La Conchiglia was born in Capri in 1989 and grew together with the homonymous bookstores created by Ausilia Veneruso, Riccardo Esposito and VincenzoSorrentino in recent years on the island and in Rome.

The structure of La Conchiglia is that of a niche publishing house that mainly takes care of specific interests with a catalog that, by 2020, has over 300 titles. The red thread that unites the choices of the Publishing House is a precise idea of ​​the journey, of the Island, of the South and of the Mediterranean and the belief that Capri should be an extraordinary international laboratory en plain air of art and culture, as well as a destination for a cultured and quality tourism.
The catalog includes, among others, authors such as James Hillman, Erri De Luca, Somerset Maugham, Ivan Bunin, Norman Douglas, Axel Munthe, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Raffaele La Capria, Edwin Cerio.

La Conchiglia bookstores are structured, since their inception in 1981, not only as outlets supplied and updated with the latest editorial news, with a vast choice of classics and a rich choice of texts in English and other languages, but also as points of aggregation and cultural organization, operational centers for cultural and social events, moments of confrontation and meeting between people who live on the island permanently or for a few days.
The La Conchiglia Editions and bookstores have chosen this name because it evokes one of the strongest and most universal symbols linked to the sea and its generative and creative abilities.

The logo features a shell that contains two sirens, deities linked to the transition between different dimensions and to transformation, also and above all through knowledge.
