Here you will find some of the most frequently asked questions, which will be helpful in better organizing your visit to the library.


Access Mode
  • The bookstore is open every day from 9 am to 7:15 pm non-stop. Access is free, and no reservation is necessary. However, please consider that the spaces are quite limited. A staff member will welcome you and request that you carefully hand-carry backpacks or bags to avoid bumping into shelves or other people. On rainy days, to prevent books and prints from getting wet, please enter with closed umbrellas and remove any capes. If you enter with purchases of similar items (e.g., prints, books) made elsewhere, please inform the staff.
  • Due to space constraints, strollers and wheelchairs are not allowed. To ensure easy access for people with mobility difficulties, you can contact us by phone and arrange a morning visit.
  • For tourist and school groups with more than 10 people, please notify us at the entrance to organise access appropriately.
  • Kindly note that our bookstore is accessible on foot only, with no parking or rest areas available. Please refrain from bringing food and drinks into the bookstore or its surroundings. Additionally, smoking, including the use of electronic devices, is strictly prohibited in areas associated with the bookstore.
  • Photography is permitted in the charming exhibition corners, ensuring consideration for the spaces and fellow visitors. On busier days, we kindly request you to move efficiently, creating room for other patrons. Access to bookshelves and stairs is allowed until 6:30 pm.
  • Within our premises, you may find our cats freely wandering. Small dogs are allowed in owners' arms or suitable carriers. For safety reasons, it's advisable to keep medium to large-sized dogs waiting outside. We do not intend to discriminate against any animal, but consider that cats are territorial and defend their space.

Thank you for your cooperation.
