Bordighera Press publishes literature and poetry by and about Italian and Italian-American authors. Many of our titles are consistently utilized in university courses, and the journal VIA:Voices in Italian Americana is subscribed to by more than fifty university libraries in the United States and Canada. Bordighera Press continues to reflect the most current nuances in the literary world. The press was founded in 1989 by Fred Gardaphé, Paolo Giordano, and Anthony Juilan Tamburri.

Initial funding was generously provided by the Fondazione Giovanni Agnelli of Turin, Italy. Support throughout the years has been provided by Columbia College Chicago, The State University of New York at Stony Brook, Loyola University Chicago, Purdue University, and Florida Atlantic University. We wish to thank the American Italian Historical Association, Alfredo dePalchi, Daniela Gioseffi, Albert Mancini, Franco Nasi, Marcello Pacini, the late Sonia Raiziss, Lidia Ramogida, Deborah Starewich, and the late Felix Stefanile for their vital contributions to the success of Bordighera Press.

The press consists of four book series and two journals: Bordighera Poetry Prize, Crossings, Saggistica, VIA Folios, and VIA and Italiana.

Bordighera POETRY PRIZE is awarded annually to the best manuscript of American poetry. The winning poetry is translated into Italian and published as a bilingual text.

The CROSSINGS series is dedicated to translations of Italian works into English, or published as bilingual editions.

SAGGISTICA is the newest series, with the first titles currently in production.

VIA FOLIOS is a series of books specializing in the literature and culture of both Italian America and Italy. VIA Folios now offers more than sixty titles.

The biannual journal VIA features writing by or about Italians and Italian-Americans, as essays, fiction, poetry, book reviews, and notes.

The journal Italiana showcases Italian language writing in the United States.
