What we do

Pari Publishing is an independent publishing house, based in a medieval Italian village. We publish books of thought-provoking ideas that challenge assumptions and serve as a springboard for discussion and action. Our books are written by both new and established authors who are experts in their fields, and are aimed at the intelligent, inquiring layperson. We specialize in the following categories: Science, Religion, Society, Psychology, Linguistics and the Arts.

Pari Publishing has its origins in the many discussions held at the Pari Center for New Learning that include artists, scientists, writers and thinkers.

Where is Pari?

The village of Pari is located 30 km south of Siena. Built on a hilltop surrounded by olive groves, grape vines and the heavily wooded countryside of the Maremma region of Tuscany, the village remains in a remarkable state of preservation.

The land surrounding Pari has been occupied for well over 2000 years. The Etruscans made use of the curative properties of the sulfur hot springs located below the village. A thousand years ago Pari became a walled town housing several hundred people. Today the population has dwindled to around two hundred people. Pari Publishing and the Pari Center for New Learning are helping in the sustainable development of the village.

The Pari Center for New Learning

We work closely with the Pari Center for New Learning, whose philosophy we share, and engage in its expanding global network of those who wish to bring about constructive change in the world.
