Philobiblon - Milan

Philobiblon is a bibliographic study of rare books in Milan, which I was called to interpret, setting up the spaces.

"Altar and counter" is the title of the permanent exhibition: a sacred place where the book has the function of leading man towards transcendence. The altar is on top of an imposing metal cage, which contains the index books, or what remains of them. A small monument to what I consider the greatest invention of man: the book.

Handmade Lombard terracotta floors, hydraulic lime plaster, furniture, repertoire and workstations in iron, stainless steel, copper and oak wood.
