Italian Massimo Listri presented this year in his book #8220; The World's Most Beautiful Libraries & #8221;, a collection of photos taken over 10 years and trips around the world visiting libraries. In the book he highlights the architectural beauty, the lights and volumes of these wonderful places, which today unfortunately are no longer being visited as they once were.

Through its large wooden doors, spiral stairs and endless bookcase aisles, the collection takes us on a journey around private, public libraries and even monasteries from around 766.

#8220; At the same time, a bibliophile beauty pageant, an ode to knowledge, and an evocation of the particular magic of engraving, Massimo Listri. The most beautiful Libraries in the world are above all a historical-cultural pilgrimage to the heart of our learning rooms, to the stories they tell, as well as to the ones they put together in print on the polished shelves & #8221 ;.

Some of the libraries presented in the book include the Vatican Apostolic Library, Sainte-Geneviève in Paris, the Trinity College Library, and the Florence Library, designed by nothing less than Michelangelo.
