A book is destined for the hands of the reader and should, therefore, be easy and enjoyable as well as durable. It is our aim to produce a newly bound book that opens easily for comfortable reading. The binder’s task is to create a considered decoration that reflects the subject and ideas of the author.

History of Antica Legatoria Viali

A book is destined for the hands of the reader and should, therefore, be easy and enjoyable as well as durable. It is our aim to produce a newly bound book that opens easily for comfortable reading. The binder’s task is to create a considered decoration that reflects the subject and ideas of the author.
The Antica Legatoria Viali was founded by Giovanni Viali in the late 19th century. The earliest records of the bookbinders date from 1891.
In 1997, the business passed to us, Lucia Maria Arena and Hans Rainer Kolb. We spent time with our predecessors learning all the skills of traditional bookbinding from their years of experience. This has allowed us to continue the business in the time-honored ways and we can justly claim to be the oldest traditional bookbinders in Viterbo.
By continuing to use the orthodox methods, the reputation of our traditional bookbinding has grown.

The care taken in the work has permitted us to:

  • Participate in the TV program Alice about Italian workshops in 2006, the program was also shown on Sky.
  • Win second prize in the 2007 and third prize in 2010 of the competition for artistic artisans, the theme was: “Forms and Colours of the Tuscia”
  • Obtain recognition from the region of Lazio as a company of high artistic level and to be included in the project “The artistic, traditional artisans’ road for Lazio”

Also in 2011 L’Antica Legatoria Viali was selected to participate with their work at an exhibition dedicated to the history of Italy. The national exhibition, was organised by the confederation of artisans to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy.
With great satisfaction l’Antica Legatoria Viali has been included in the national register of historic companies, instigated on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy.
