Editoriale Ultra

Editoriale Ultra was an Italian publisher based in Milan. Founded as a public limited company on 24 January 1934, they were significant producers of printed matter during the 1930s and into the Second World War. Their output included the novels of Maria Cecchi Betrone and popular series such as “Oliva, Storia e leggenda e l’Enciclopedia storica Ultra” and  Il flauto di Pan,” but also printed matter for Mussolini’s fascist government.

Editorale Ultra had only existed for a few years when the first bankruptcy proceedings against them began in 1936. Still, the company managed to survive through the war, in part due to their government contracts. After the war, it continued in a reduced capacity into the 1950s.
