Sandro Penna

The library was opened in 2004 and is named after the Peruginian poet Sandro Penna. It was built from a project of the architect Italo Rota who conceived it as a big pink disk, entirely glazed and illuminated by night.

It has become a point of reference for those who want to read or study, due to its architectural shape and position in the middle of the neighbourhood of San Sisto.

The charming design is supported by the book patrimony paying attention to the necessities of different generations and rich of narrative books.

Sandro Penna Library is particurarly focused on children and teenagers, both in the selection of books and in the construction of different sections and dedicated areas.

The library offers:
50 reading seats – consultation –  bibliographical references - inner or between libraries loan – catalog consultation - computer with internet access and computer printing – video – guided tours – cultural activities – wifi - MediaLibraryOnLine.
