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.
