During June and July the library will only be opened on the following days: Sun 10.00-12.30; Tues 10.00-13.00, and Wed 15.00-18.00. In August the library is only open on Sun 10.00-12.30 except for Sunday 16 August, which will be closed for Ferragosto. Please note that in the event of a transport strike, or an Italian or American national holiday, the library will be closed.
