In Como there are some important appointments, including, at the end of August and early September, the Book Fair.
The event is in Piazza Cavour, the Como’s living room where, as every year, tourists and enthusiasts will find extensive bookshops and cultural appointments, they can participate in debates and comparisons on cultural, literary, historical or topical issues.
The Book Fair in Como is under a comfortable air-conditioned tent that houses hundreds of hundreds of new and used books, antique volumes, vintage prints, posters, tourist guides and more. It offers a wide and heterogeneous choice for all tastes and all pockets. The appointment is always daily, opening from late morning to late evening.
As always is rich the opportunity to attend book presentations, meetings with authors, participate in debates and confront cultural, literary, historical, topical issues.
The Book Fair in Como is organized by the Associazione Manifestazione librarie. The initiative was born from some bookstores who, over time, joined other city libraries. The first fair place was the “Portici del Broletto” and later – for over twenty years – the renowned and panoramic Piazza Cavour. Lake Como’s publishers and Associates are always there, but also Canton Ticino and Graubünden active publishers. The Association aims to spread the complex and differents Lombard culture. The complete catalog of comic publishing (covering the Como, Milan, Lecco, Sondrio, Varese and Canton Ticino territories) includes some hundreds of titles, which will often be available with interesting discounts on the cover price.
The Book Fair 2017 edition of the Book Fair in Como will take place from August 26th to September 10th.
