  • Recently, I attended several times the library Sormani, both for consultation, or to explore the still valid exhibitions from time to time. This morning I came back just for the great exhibition dedicated to the painter and Illustrator Fernando Carcupino (1922-2003) with over seventy works of high artistic value, made with different painting techniques inspired by the most diverse topics: tables on the great war, landscapes, portraits, nudes, illustrations of episodes of Maigret. The exhibition, which will last until July 7 and which I highly recommend, is also an excellent opportunity for newbies to get familiar with this magnificent 17th century building and with its rich library. Admission is free. More details in my previous review. (17 June 2017 * visited *)

The library is well stocked both books periodicals, including newspapers, which have poured on microfilm, and you can see. I could see newspapers of 20-30 years ago. The staff seemed friendly and helpful

  • One of the oldest in Milan, you can find books about literature, philosophy and history here
  • The best coop around, guess because of affluent clientele
  • L-S 9-19.30.
  • I served only the study hall on the second floor and I can say that I was expecting to be much larger since it is located in the city centre. Anyway being central is very easy to reach, in this period is easily and it is also very quiet so great to maintain concentration. There are no electrical outlets on each station.
