Il Filo d’Arianna
Precious Ancient and Modern books in Franco Maria Ricci’s Labyrinth
In the beautiful context of his Labirinto della Masone, publisher, collector, and bibliophile Franco Maria Ricci hosts the first edition of Il Filo d’Arianna, an exhibition which is also a market for ancient and modern books. It was his strong desire to create it as an event that would allow the best booksellers to show their treasures so that enthusiasts, collectors, and the curious public could peruse and leaf through them as well as purchase them.
“With its colonnades, its Museum, and its Library, my Labyrinth will be the ideal frame for an event dedicated to precious ancient and modern books I’ve been thinking of since the day I first imagined and designed it. It wouldn’t be completely wrong to say that, at least in some way, it was designed and created for this purpose.” (Franco Maria Ricci)
