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.READ MORE
In addition to serving the public, for 2020 the Biblioteca Braidense will carry out its programme of exhibitions and events focusing on enhancing the collection, the book as an art object and increasing knowledge of the collections through cataloging, accompanied by a series of educational programmes.READ MORE
