  • Very interesting exhibition with very old books. The guide gave us great explanations on the books and book making process, thank you very much!
  • This is the oldest library in the world (in continual operation) and highly significant for the collection of manuscripts it holds containing the earliest European legal, historical and literary work. Highly recommended the guided tour on Sundays (in Italian), or the Youtube documentaries available in English. Interestingly, the oldest university in the world - the University of Bologna - founded much later in 1088 is less than 200 km away, making Northern Italy truly the centre of western civilization until at least the invention of the printing press.
