La Biblioteca Torriani. Un prezioso fondo librario finalmente catalogato


For more than 30 years the "knot" had still not been untied: the book collection, which constitutes the Torriani Library located in the noble Palazzo Torriani in the heart of old Mendrisio, remained a mysterious object. Now, after a year and a half of work, the nearly 5,000 ancient volumes have been inventoried and a complete catalog of the collection has thus been completed. The cataloging work was conducted by Damiano Paolocci with the assistance and support of the Gerber family, owner of the Palazzo and the adjoining library, the City of Mendrisio, whose Museums and Culture Department was coordinator of the work, and the Department of Education Culture and Sport of the Canton of Ticino.
