Why that name? Zanzara is Italian for ‘mosquito’ which is the surname of our designer, editor, and publisher in German, i.e. Muecke, aka polytekton.

We have been editing, designing, and publishing books since 2005, beginning with our parent company Culicidae Press.

Zanzara (the shoe company) is NOT related to Zanzara Press, and in our opinion, we don’t know why a shoe company is named after an insect, but that is beyond the scope of our About Us.
