I am a young local artist loving art books, children books, pop-up books and self-printed books ( Silkscreen printing and woodcut too). I also love to find hidden and particular places of the towns I visit! I've been drawing since the age of 4 and been studying visual and applied arts since 2009. I also love music: old and new vynils and know where to find them :) I am talkative and competent about typical Architecture of Bologna. I've been touring people around my town since 2017. And I know many Bologna secrets and special corners too. Can't wait for you finding them out together!
We'll start from Sala Borsa ( the main library ) right in the Main square. than the tour is flexible and can be guided through the university district where we'll find the greatest self-publishing /indipendent bookshops, a Vynils, cds and old Poster movies market (Tuesday only) and cafè to have a break. Or we'll go through some ancient "vicoli" (little streets) to a big Bookshop with a café, and then to the Art bookshop, esoteric library and more
