Who we are

AC² is a literary agency founded in Italy in 2012, focused on representing quality fiction and non-fiction for adults, YA and children.

AC² represents Italian publishers and authors, and foreign publishers and agencies, in Italy and worldwide.

We belong to the first generation of digital natives and aspire to make the best use of our IT skills and Web 2.0 savvy in the literary world. We have valuable experience as publishing house insiders with hands-on knowledge of publishing procedures. Our strength lies in our know-how and passion, indispensable for agenting that is effective, qualified and fruitful.

AC² was founded in the twent-first century and well aware of the pivotal role played by pop culture in this age. Our Agency embraces the strong influence of music, cinema, contemporary art, design and IT in its vision of the world and of literature.

We strive to pitch books and authors to the best possible publishers, to the ones “best suited” in each case, prioritizing the “best fit”. A publisher or agency entrusting their catalogue to AC² can rest assured that we will select the most suitable outlet for their books, based on our vast knowledge of Italian publishing houses and catalogues, not to mention our continuous working relationship with their staff.

AC² is in no way contrary to e-books and online self-publishing. We wish to help our clients achieve maximum results in those areas as well, always maintaining a quality on par with printed books. We are also able to help foreign publishers and agents to locate translators (from English to multiple languages) for clients who have chosen to go the way of self-publishing.

We also offer a host of other services targeted specifically at Italian customers.
