The publishing house Einaudi was founded on 1933 by Giulio Einaudi, son of the future president of Italy, Luigi Einaudi. It was soon targeted by the fascist regime, the owner was arrested in 1935 and later sent into internal exile. The publishing house has always been politically active and has used prestigious collaborators of the caliber of Cesare Pavese, Giaime Pintor, Massimo Mila, Elio Vittorini, Italo Calvino, Natalia Ginzburg and Leone Ginzburg. In 1994 after a long lasting crisis, it was acquired by the Mondadori group, to which it still belongs.
