Overview

There are two reasons why the central city library is the most popular with the young: first, it has a large collection of books, but second, it does not look like a traditional library where talking is not allowed. The library has definitively been set out in this building in 1960. Ever since the 19th c. the publisher Giuseppe Pomba had proposed the establishment of a public library on the Anglo-Saxon model for the use, mainly, of manual workers and offering general types of books. The library was originally set up at Palazzo di Città in 1869 and today has half a million volumes.
