Salone Internazionale del Libro and it's basically a five-day book exhibition, with conferences, booths and more.
My mom and I went there every year, since I started university and my schedule was more flexible, because it's easier to visit it on weekdays instead of the weekend. I never find authors or lectures that actually interest me, due to my geeky tastes, but it's always amazing being surrounded by books and seeing your favorite editions in person instead of on a computer screen!
I have a little list of favorite publishers I always want to visit every year. One is Salani, that publishes all the Harry Potter books. I really wanted to purchase the illustrated edition of the Philosopher's Stone but, since there aren't any special discounts at the event (that's a major downside for me), I decided to wait and buy it from Amazon, where the price is lower!
Even if I don't read many classics, it's always nice spotting the newest editions every year. I loved the illustrated one of Alice in Wonderland!
Here is my little bookish haul.
Alberto Angela. This guy is a well known scientific popularizer who works in TV since I was a child, he made me love archaeology and ancient history and I've been so lucky to meet him at a book con few years ago. #fangirlmoment
Here is my little bookish adventure, hope you enjoyed my ramblings and photos! :)
