  • Dear friends, after the fourth time visiting Mantua I discovered beauty rich in history and culture in the halls of the library. Teresian Built by Maria Theresa of Austria in 1779, is decorated with Walnut shelving that reach to the ceiling, both in the right and left walls of both rooms. the library contains more than 350,000 units, of which 170,000 standing (incunabula, papers, prints, drawings, globigeografici and special funds-including the bottom of the world's most important Jewish cabalistic). After a period of restoration was reopened to the public in 2014. On this occasion we were transferred 4 Globes depicting Earth and sky, two dated 1693, others dating back to 1696 works of an Abbot. The two large rooms benefit from copies from the originals by Murano glass chandeliers. A great picture hanging on a wall, depicts Mary Teresa. Well worth a visit, which is free of charge.

  • 5 minutes to live an exciting experience! It is a 5-minute walk from the Centre. Just entered in the library I thought as a student: maybe a library so close to home. Are two rooms STRAT-full of books but it is the atmosphere that affects! It seems to be precisely in the harry Potter films, shelves on shelves of books and many small wooden ladders. Not to be missed. Entry is free.

  • Mantua dress but I haven't been to visit the Teresian Library. It was a very nice experience! I met an almost magical place, atmosphere-rich in culture and charm. I had in my hands a book dedicated to the 16th-century Platonist Marsilio Ficino and his Florentine Academy. I saw Globes in which no Australia because not yet discovered. I enjoyed as a kid who discovers a new world and recommend to all those who love culture visit this enchanted place. I forgot: the guide was very friendly and helpful. Thank you!
