1 Feb-12 May 2012. This travelling exhibition of handmade books, created with recycled materials, is part of a wider project organised by Centro Specializzato per Ragazzi for Italian schools.

This exhibition consists of six panels, on which hang precious books on a variety of subjects. A giant book will allow children to take a journey through the history of writing from cave painting to early printed books.

On display are also curious objects, including a Thai bean, which bears an inscription taken from an ancient manuscript, a copy of the Phaistos Disk, a small Torah and a set for Chinese writing.
