La Biblioteca


La Biblioteca
The books that since a long time you programmed to read, the books you searched for years without finding them, books that discuss a topic you’re dealing with at the moment, books that you want to keep to have them on hand, books that you could put aside to read them this summer, books that you miss and would like to place next to your other books on the shelf, books that inspire you a sudden, frantic and unjustified curiosity.

Italo Calvino, Se una notte d’inverno un viaggiatore
