The conditions and the quality of publishing works are fields of analysis that have not been deepened enough to date. The "Editoria Invisibile" study, which is still a work in progress, aims at filling this research gap by intercepting more than a thousand workers in the publishing world. The online survey was distributed on over 98 italian provinces returning a large and complex workers’s universe. The first evidence is the strong imbalance between the number of male and female workers, strongly oriented to the female pole. The interviewed sample looks concentrated in central age cohorts and reports a significant level of professional figures with a high medium qualification (one case out of three is a postgraduate master and PhD). The study, nearing completion, is already able to show the fragmentation that characterizes the sector of the book industry, both from the bargaining point of view and the remunerative point of view. However, a strong feeling of identity emerges from the study: many people asking for better contracts, protections, recognitions appear to desire the birth of a representative and organizing network of publishing workers
