Why locals love it

One of the most original library in the world! All the bookcases are unique: canoes, gondolas, little boats, rafts. Moreover some books became part of the furnishing on the walls or in a particular flight of steps. A lot of books in italian and in other languages fill the library.

Why you should visit it

Here you can find every kind of book, new and second hand books, art and cinema books, a lot of comics and much more! The advice is to buy at least a book to help this special library living forever. The owner, Luigi Frizzo, is a kind and friendly person who surely can help you.

Special tip

There are also some books translated in the local venetian dialect as, for example, “The little Prince”.

Very small and cluttered. I felt like they didnt give the books the respect they deserve. They were just strewn about with no order. I was appalled and greatly dissapointed after trekking the narrows of venice.
