Casalini Libri and @Cult

Casalini Libri joins forces with its historic partner @Cult, a software house based in Rome and specializing in the design and development of solutions for information management and knowledge sharing. The union both strengthens and furthers the Casalini mission to promote the dissemination of culture through increasingly advanced services to libraries, institutions and publishers.
Aware of the changes required by digital transformation and committed to providing solutions, @Cult responds perfectly to the operational needs of the new Casalini - Erasmus - Houtschild group. It is therefore natural that it should become the new centre for research and development within the company, at the same time guaranteeing maximum autonomy and enhancing professional skills, to the benefit of all those who work and collaborate with Casalini Libri.
