Digital first publishing in Italy

Announcement of Italy's first major 'digital first' imprint.

The Italian publisher RCS Libri has launched a digital-first book list called Rizzoli First.

The move follows the success of War Horse which was released as an e-book in Italy months before the print edition and the film were released.

The list, which will be released without DRM will publish Italian and English language versions of works ahead of the print version release.
