Textbooks for K6-K13 make 84% of the revenues, the remaining being divided among textbooks for universities, dictionaries and law books.

40% of Zanichelli’s pre-print investments is for digital content, all paper textbooks are, by law requirement, blended paper + digital; the market of digital textbooks is virtually non existent in Italy (yet).
