Who we are? Publishers Skipper

Digital as a vector allows everyone to be a publisher, and that’s exactly what you all became. There, we started acting like skippers, somehow: we step on board of other people’s boats and help the owners sail. Of course we still are publishers on our own, and manage the whole communications activity process, although we always keep in mind that the future is in the hands of the people capable of creating great contents and distributing it.
> Publishers, managers, consultants, digital neo-journalists and young geeks. Our team consists of great tailors, whose expertise and training span across publishing, consultancy, digital and marketing.
> People who spent their entire lives cutting and sewing and, before anyone else, learned that bits and bytes are better than atoms, that content is king, and distribution is King-Kong.
