Biblioteca Nazionale Braidense

The goal of the Biblioteca Braidense in the future is to become “the ideal library”, described by Umberto Eco, a national and international model for research, projects and exhibitions that can defend, enhance, preserve and promote reading, writing and the book, as well as its priceless collections which today number over 1,500,000 volumes.
