Our Products
De Agostini partworks came into being in 1959, when the publishing house decided to print the first copies of a geographical encyclopaedia, Il Milione, as a partwork, to be sold at newsstands on a weekly basis. This innovative idea flung open the doors to a hitherto unexplored market in Italy - that of collectable products. It was an immediate success. From that time onwards, this area of activity has continued to grow and develop, meeting consumer demands and anticipating needs.

Partworks are magazine series on a specific topic, which build up gradually to a comprehensive body of work. The magazines are complemented by content-based offerings such as DVDs, collectibles or part of a kit.

Since the publication of the first partworks, De Agostini has expanded and updated its product range constantly. Besides the classic partworks now digital products like APPs are included in the program. The topics and areas of our products are diverse: drawing and painting, collections to culture, history and geography, and language and computer classes, music and movie collections, collections for children, families and young people, and collections for a variety of hobbies, such as cooking or modelling.
