About us

Johan & Levi, which was founded in 2005 by Giovanna Forlanelli Rovati, quickly established itself as one of the most active and best known independent publishing houses in Italy. Specializing in art, alongside its new publications Johan & Levi reprints out-of-print titles and commissions new translations of essay collections, thus filling a key gap in Italian publishing.
