    What to Expect
    With The Timeless Beauty of Paper you will visit the seventeenth-century Biblioteca Ambrosiana, one of the first libraries founded by a private patron open for public reading, to introduce you to the art of bookbinding. This art is well-represented in Milan with an historical workshop: here discover that everything is done by hand using age-old techniques handed down from one generation to another.

    The guided visit will start at 2:30 PM from the Biblioteca Ambrosiana (Piazza Pio XI, 2 Milano). Admission ticket included. Transfer between the museum and the historical workshop by a short walk in the ancient 5Vie neighborhood.

    Timeless Beauty is part of Milano Grand Tour, a set of itineraries dedicated to the excellence of Arts and Crafts in Milan, organized in collaboration with Cologni Foundation for the Métiers d'Art.
