Limited Capacity seats available

While a books content is often a masterpiece, it's presentation can be a work of art. This is the first of two events dedicated to the " great beauty" of prestigious book editions. It focuses on 20 works displayed in the Italian Genius Pavilion and preserved in one of Europe's oldest libraries, the Biblioteca Angelica in Rome. Founded in 1604, the library houses a priceless archive of over 200,000 (roughly half of which were published prior to the 20th century). It is also the opportunity to talk about the richness of the Italian Library collection and Italian Public Libraries.
