About us
The publishing house Salvatella was founded, more than 90 years ago, with the aim of providing children with quality educational material. From the very beginning special care and attention was given to publishing books, a premise which continues today and which has become the publisher's trademark. The publishing house Salvatella is characterised by exactly that, paying attention to detail and, in turn, contributing fundamental values to child education, all in order to achieve entertaining and accessible learning.

The beginnings: Salvatella, ambassador of the active school
In 1922, Miguel A. Salvatella founded the publishing house which bears his name in the heart of the Barcelona neighbourhood, Gracia. After working in his father's bookshop for several years, the young Miguel wanted to adapt school publications to the new educational trends of our time and which are encompassed under the "active school" concept. Salvatella thus became one of the pioneers in the field of educational publications, both for pupils and teachers.

Second generation and consolidation
The constant effort to adapt with the times made Salvatella a leading reference in the educational sector and has been maintained to the present day. When Miguel retired in 1977, his sons Juan and José María -with 20 years of experience- set up a public company headed up by both of them. Under their management, the publishers underwent some changes and without losing its pedagogical essence, it focussed on child education and on arts and crafts books; it was the first to create nursery-level sheets.

Towards the digital era
From 1997 it has been Joan, son of Juan, who has taken charge of the company, initiating a phase of multiple changes: the basis of the publishing house were modernised and new lines were opened up. In 2014, the image of Salvatella was given a fresh look, with a logo and website very much in line with the trends of the moment. All this brought together within an ambitious project to digitalise existing collections and create applications for mobile devices, while maintaining the high educational value so characteristic of the publishing house.
