The origins of the Italian publishing house De Agostini date back to 1901, when geographer Giovanni De Agostini started publishing atlases in Rome. In 1959, a geographical encyclopedia was released as a partwork for the first time, i.e. it was sold at newsstands on a weekly basis. In the following decades the company diversified into partworks including many different kinds of collectibles. Today the De Agostini group operates worldwide and has acquired several other publishing houses specialized in partworks: Altaya, Del Prado, and, until 2019, Atlas. Among the model car partworks released under the De Agostini name since 2003, there are several collections sold in Italy (military vehicles, spiders and cabriolets, Italian cars, police cars, Rally Paris-Dakar) as well as a range of Eastern European cars in 1/43rd scale made by Premium & Collectibles Trading Co. Ltd. (maker of the models by Ixo and IST Models) and first sold in Poland and Russia, then also in other countries. In the meantime, the group has also released partworks in South America.
