Riotta was editor of Rai’s Tg 1, the leading Italian TV-news program, and Il Sole 24 Ore, the Italian financial daily newspaper. A former columnist at Corriere della Sera in New York, he now writes for La Repubblica. He has contributed to many publications, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Financial Times. Riotta has published two novels set in Sicily: Prince of the Clouds (Farrar, Straus and Giroux) and The Lights of Alborada (HarperCollins).

Since 2019, Assouline has partnered with the non-profit organization One Tree Planted in their joint mission to create a more sustainable world. Through this partnership, Assouline plants one tree for every book sold. Once these trees reach maturity, Assouline aims to create a sustainable cycle by sourcing paper from the trees it has planted.

Standard Gift Wrapping

Assouline signature gift wrapping is available. When this option is selected, books are wrapped in a special white matte gift wrapping paper – sourced specifically by the Assouline family for an authentic approach and sealed with the brand’s signature red wax seal for the final touch of luxury.


Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page.
