Lorenzo Press was founded by Connecticut author Anthony Maulucci who became seriously disillusioned with commercial publishing after years of trying to sell his work in New York. Read his Biography and Publishing Philosophy.
The press was named after three writers named Lawrence with ties to Italy: Lorenzo de Medici, poet and Renaissance patron; D. H. Lawrence, who loved Italy and was known as Lorenzo to his intimate friends; and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, for his poetry and trailblazing work as the independent publisher of City Lights Books.
Lorenzo Press books have been reviewed in Voices in Italian Americana, Fra Noi (Chicago), The San Diego Union Tribune, The Italian Tribune (New Jersey), The New London Day, and The Norwich Bulletin.
