Whether you're an Italian living in London or interested in learning the language, The Italian Bookshop has something to offer. A wide range of educational books, teachers' resources and Italian literature are stocked. You could easily forget that you were in central London browsing among the book shelves - the selection is as good as any shop in Rome or Milan. Originally called The Italian Bookshop by Messaggerie, the shop became part of the European Schoolbooks Ltd group in June 2000.
