XL edizioni was born on January 2006.
XL abbreviation is broadly known as Extra Large. Here is used in the way Rem Koolhas did. The famous architect, in his work S,M,L,XL, refereed to those initials as something concerning the urban dimension, with its ‘radiances’ and ‘pittances’ as the foundations of contemporary culture. The publishing house was born thanks to the friendship and the cooperation among intellectuals and academics. Its interest is not only addressed towards modern societies but also, and above all, to widen the research and its open space of discussion. Urban condition becomes not a constraint, tough, but a background where multiplicity meet and face itself.
XL edizioni deals with philosophical, political, sociological, historical, human rights and gender studies essays, connecting academic knowledge to a young and innovative scientific scenario. The goal is to overpass the strict separation between the branches of culture and create new trends of research and melting pot to which our editorial series can give voice
