The Edizioni Santa Caterina publishing project was implemented by the College, which has always organized and promoted cultural events and meetings.
Edizioni Santa Caterina publishes exhibition catalogues, meeting minutes and texts of historical, literary, biomedical and legal-social studies staged in the College or Residence.
Also published is the series “Quaderni del Master di editoria”, volumes fully conceived, made and promoted by the Master students under the guidance of teachers.
The Edizioni Santa Caterina project combines a desire to make publishing, literary, artistic and scientific culture better known with a character of innovation. An idea represented by the logo, the detail of a wood engraving contained in the Epistole devotissime de Sancta Catharina da Siena, a book printed in 1500 in Venice by Aldo Manuzio, the greatest printer of the time and the first publisher in a modern sense. In the wood engraving, St. Catherine, to whom the College is dedicated, holds a book in her hand on which the first words can be read in italics, characters seen in this wood engraving for the first time in the history of publishing and known throughout the world as “italics”.
