FACTOTUM is a dynamic and new-concept literary agency, born from the encounter of operators who share a great passion and professionalism, with different and complementary skills, matured in the publishing and music fields.

It was founded by Gianluigi Zecchin, with over forty years of experience in publishing, film and music as a sales and marketing manager. Years of experience that allowed him to gain a deep knowledge of the Italian book market and to contribute to the success of authors whose first book he launched.

FACTOTUM is the Agency of Creativity, which proposes itself to the authors of literary, theatrical, cinematographic, television, radio and electronic texts, but also of the authors of films, music, graphics and other intellectual works.


To the Italian and foreign authors, the FACTOTUM Agency offers a complete personalized consultancy: a series of services ranging from the presentation, sale and administration of the rights of their works both in Italy and abroad. Our assistance begins with the search for the best publisher, continues by conducting negotiations and drawing up contracts and guaranteeing their administration over the years. With each of its authors, FACTOTUM agrees which extension of services to provide to its work: services that can include the management of secondary rights, including direct sales abroad.

For Italian and Foreign publishers, the FACTOTUM Agency proposes to represent them abroad, presenting and promoting their catalogue both directly and through a network of co-agents and sub-agents around the world, conducting negotiations and managing contracts. It also offers targeted scouting services by conducting research on the international market to identify particular works on topics of interest to them.
