The Sala di lettura is primarily the place that shares and makes available the extensive book and document collection of the Foundation.

Being part of an integrated system with a research arm, publishing house, and teaching activities, the Sala di lettura constitutes the first component of a production chain that develops sources, then diffuses and promotes them. The aim is to create a hub of knowledge within a place to debate and discuss, situated within an international network.

It is a place opened to everyone, where the book collection helps to establish connections and relations with the contemporaneity, exploiting a secular and critical approach that is at the same time a tool to compare different attitudes and perspectives.

The Sala is set up to offer analogical and digital consultation services, with the intention of making more documents, volumes and periodicals available in digital format. The latest acquisitions can be freely viewed on tablets from comfortable reading positions that also offer panoramic views of the city.

The Sala has free access, subject to availability, from Monday to Thursday from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm, and on Friday from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm
