Library for the Collection of Literary Material «E. Sanguineti»

To accommodate the collection of books Edoardo Sanguineti the Biblioteca Universitaria of Genova (since 1975 a peripheral institute of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities) has set up a Library Centre in the new premises of former Hotel Columbia. With the opportunity all the furniture was designed, except the tables designed by Mario Labò in the 30's for the old location and now restored. All the furniture are in oak wood and the linear development of the shelves is almost 1.000 meters. In the library, located in the former kitchens of the hotel, refurbished during the restoration of entire building, there are extensive reading and study areas.
