Our Mission

San Marco Press specialises in the publication of new books about Venice, and the reprinting of older Venice-centered titles that have become scarce.

We are adding new publications to our Venetian list regularly, and poetry is also important to us. We aim to balance the work of established writers with the encouragement of new talent.

We are always interested in hearing from our readers, so please contact us with your ideas.
