Mostra del Libro Antico - International Antiquarian Book Fair (ALAI)

decoration23 Sept. 2011|25 Sept. 2011
From 22 to 25 September 2011 Bologna will host the 8th Artelibro Art Book Festival, one of Italy's most prestigious book and art events held in cooperation with the Italian Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association (ALAI).

The success of last year’s International Antiquarian Book Fair, sponsored by ILAB and ALAI, motivated numerous national and international booksellers to exhibit again at the beautiful Palazzo Re Enzo in 2011. 37 exhibitors will present highlights of the history of the book from magnificently illuminated medieval manuscripts to early editions of Galileo Galilei’s or Willliam Harvey’s groundbreaking works and rare first editions of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories and the illustrated adventures of Pinocchio.

Like last year, Bologna’s cultural institutions will enrich the Art Book Festival with a series of exhibitions and conferences concerning the world of the book. To celebrate the 2200th anniversary of the founding of the Roman colony of "Bononia", the theme of Artelibro 2011 will be Archaeology.
