  • Next to the Chiesa Nuova, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, where is the State archives. You climb a long ladder, interrupted by strange white tents that have seen better times, and you get to the library. It is very beautiful! All these ancient volumes, bound in dark wood bookcase.

  • This place is excellent because of its kind staff. You will need an id to study here.

What a pity that you can look but not touch. The texts are not available (a small percentage is accessible after lengthy procedures for registration and accreditation) and the opening times are unreliable.

  • Unique place one of the most important ancient libraries in Rome, I have not put 5 stars because it is hard to find (maps has a different address)

  • Beautiful library designed by Borromini, filled with furniture designed by the artist. One of the hidden gems in Rome. Highly recommended a visit
