The venue for this fair will again be the renovated Auditorium Vivaldi of the National Library in Piazza Carlo Alberto, a most appropriate location to display antiquarian books, incunabula, artists' books, rare books from the 900s, prints, maps, manuscripts and more. An unmissable date for bibliophiles, collectors, booksellers and also for simply passionate readers.

The event is organised in collaboration with Abebooks.it - a marketplace for antiquarian books.

("Leonardo and his knowledge - A journey through the bibliographic collections of the National University Library of Turin, the Luigi Firpo Foundation and the University of Turin")
