Visibly excited Dr. Raffaella Tessaro, Head of the Cultural Sector, who has worked in our municipality for several years with passion and dedication, and who we are going to talk about next issue of our magazine at newsagents from Saturday, July 2nd.
Doctor Tessaro retell the story of the reading room, which from a room inside the center, Anne Frank was then moved to the room above the cadastral office, where it had been for nearly thirty years. He then left the floor to a no less enthusiastic Irene Canzan, librarian historian known and loved by all visitors to the small reading room, proud to finally be able to call these new spaces: library.
Before you continue with the internal visitwhere the children were entertained by an animated reading, the Professor of Library Therapy at Popular University of Sona (our second flagship) Marco Dalla Valle read some passages reminiscent of the beauty of reading and books taken from texts by Daniel Pennac and a poem by Emily Dickinson accompanied by the magical sound of the harp played by musician Emiliano Martinelli.
The harp, the oldest of the accordion instruments, comes from the bow used in battle in antiquity. An instrument of war transformed into an instrument of peace and beauty as we hope these new spaces, along with books and culture can bring beauty to our society.
There is a need for beauty understood as good feelings, good relationships, good life in general and culture is a fundamental element in forming good citizens. We hope that with this new library we can set in motion and set in motion many new initiatives for all age groups from the youngest to the oldest.
