  • A very nice antique library, curated and frequented. The ceiling is breathtaking. The piano in the lobby is often the subject of great improvised performances. There is a lot of place to study but usually there is always a niche. Not suitable for those who need electrical outlets. A Must see. Elegant, ancient beautiful and breathe taking inside.

  • Beautiful structure, many activities for children, so many books to choose from. except that if you lose or steal the card you have to pay her back! When you return a book seems to deliver the gold from what are tax!

  • Place that has spanned centuries of history, cultural and commercial heart of Bologna, administrative tasks over time. It is possible to admire the historical layers through the glass panels placed on the floor. Very beautiful bows on the different floors.

  • Enlightened library and fun to explore. A central city library that serves both locals and visitors to the city very well. Within the library complex are function spaces for meetings and events. The piano can be played from 7:15 pm to 8:00 pm during the week when the library is open. NB the public toilet will cost you 50c downstairs.
  • The library is fine if you wanna take a coffee or a snack, but not if you have some work to do. It's quite crowded since it's in a very touristic place and it isn't so easy to focus on what you're doing.
  • Bellissima, da vedere e vivere
  • Great place to work, with free wifi!
  • Come dovrebbe essere una biblioteca!
