A book is a book- Italian publishers launch VAT campaign

Our Italian colleagues have launched a "book is a book" campaign, supported by Italy’s Minister of Culture, with the message that printed books and ebooks should carry the same level of VAT. The President of the Italian Publishers Association, Marco Polillo, said that the Association was fully behind the campaign #unlibroèunlibro aims to engage readers and public opinion. Polillo said. “We hope to see this cultural challenge endorsed by the entire Italian Government: Italy could lead Europe on this fight during the Italian Presidency and beyond. At the same time we ask our Government to go forward and act autono-mously if Europe shouldn’t be ready to follow us.

You can support the campaign on Twitter #unlibroeunlibro and Facebook Un libro è un libro
