The “Fondazione Biblioteche” Conservation, usage, valorization of the libraries’ heritage
In the splendid rooms of the entity Cassa di Risparmio Firenze, in via Bufalini 6, a new library has opened in the heart of the city, a functional and modern library in a historical setting: that of Fondazione Biblioteche realized by Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze and Ente Cassa. A space of more than a thousand square meters, at the disposal of books and readers, with more than eight thousand volumes to be studied. These are of particular importance, received for purchase or donation. To the issues realized over the years by the Florentine Credit Institute born in 1829, editions of rather refined art, in 1990 the fund of Roberto Ridolfi has been added, including antique and authentic bibliographic rarities.
