Verso was born out of the idea of a group of friends who have many years of experience in the publishing industry.
Andrea Gessner, publisher of Nottetempo; Pietro Biancardi, publisher of Iperborea; Tomaso Biancardi, literary scout and translator; Alessandro Beretta, literary critic, director of the Milan Film Festival; Lisa Sacerdote, photo editor and author of projects for photography. The director Davide Mosca of the bookshop works together with a team of young booksellers.
The bookshop also has a bar where clients can have a break or a business meeting, study, enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
Events are the beating heart Verso: these include book presentations, courses, theatre show and classes.
