There are many Albanian authors who live in Albania (or outside Italy) and who have books written or translated into Italian. Among the most important reasons and certainly the Italian publishing market numerically larger than the Albanian one and books written in Italian receive much more attention.
But there are also many authors of Albanian origin who live in Italy and often write about topics that concern Italy and for this reason they turn to Italians. These productions have a significant impact on the image of the emigrant in Italy, so much so that there is talk of works that, beyond their literary value, constitute an instrument to overcome the boundaries still so conditioning the way of thinking of Italians and their image of immigrants in Italy.
The Albanian Writers in Italian online database includes book titles of Albanian authors published in Italian to date. To this is added the section concerning both the authors of Albania and Kosovo with writings in Italian, and the migrant writers, who live and work in Italy, writing and publishing their works in Italian.
It is an initiative aimed at creating a centralized online operational tool, which is not yet existing but of great use to both professionals and the general public.
