Last updated: 15/04/24

National Editions respond to the fundamental scholarly need to ensure the safeguarding, promotion, and enjoyment of literary heritage and thought constituted by writings by our authors. These initiatives ensure the publication of an author’s complete works (or, in some cases, the main works of a group of authors) in editions based on recognition and critical transcription of all manuscripts. They offer all the texts – published and unpublished – of an author, clarifying, using every possible documentation, his or her history and education.

National Editions, to which the Ministry offers recognition and support, are assigned, by decree of the Ministry of Culture, after consultation with the Council of national committees and national editions, a scientific Commission made up of scholars of specific expertise that follow their development, from both scholarly and operational perspectives. The Commission sets the criteria for publication, identifies contributors to prepare the volumes, gives clearance for sending the volumes to press, and reports to the Minister on its work with special annual reports
