TAKE A BREAK FOR RELAXATION BETWEEN THE BOOK MORE ECOLOGIC OF ITALY

Libraries, for their own nature, are welcoming places that invite to reflection and to dedicate more time to yourself. In addition their sensitivity to environmental sustainability is strong and it is shown in many ways.

 
From historical places like the "Centro Botanico" of Milan, with his international botanical library and the laboratory of fragrances and natural products, to the most recent libraries of "Feltrinelli Red", like that of Florence, who have combined books with the conviviality of a cup of tea or a snack made from organic products, these businesses are increasingly spaces of aggregation in the name of environmental and social sustainability, and offer restorative breaks in our busy lives.

 
 
There are also many libraries-restaurant, for example, the "Brac" in Florence, where you can eat (vegetarian and vegan) surrounded by books of contemporary art and artworks, or showroom-libraries  like "Nonostante Marras", the concept store of design who welcomes us in Milan in a space composed of recovered items and new fashion creations.

 
 
But undoubtedly the trophy of eco-sustainability goes, in this little hit parade, to "Eco Bookshop Valcucine":  a thematic library dedicated to sustainable culture with more than 1,700 titles, housed in the company's flagship store in Milan.
