Polimoda Library


Place of memory, inspiration and creativity

The library contains the most important international collection of monographs, periodicals, videos, look books, and antique, rare and precious materials for creative artists. It is a different kind of library, conceived for the creative artist, for the person who “treats his own mind differently” (Louis I. Kahn), in other words who is able to see images not as they appear to the ordinary eye, but to see what his mind tells him to see.

Opening hours: from Monday to Thursday from 8.30 am to 7.00 pm and on Friday from 8.30 am to 6.00 pm
