What today we know as a book in its traditional form: a conjunction of paper, ink, threads, glue, sometimes sophisticated, sometimes rustic (legal and pirated) ..., has a unique and fascinating history. To reach that current body, the book traveled a long path of centuries and millennia of transformations, tensions and even contradictions: it began in stone, went through wood and the skin of animals (even humans), until it reached fibers vegetable and synthetic; for a long time it was made by hand, entirely, until that curious invention appeared that completely modified culture: the printing press, in the fifteenth century of our era; and needless to say, at the end of the 20th century, the format that digital came to offer. We invite you to learn more about this fascinating story.

General public interested in a cultural training, in the company of your friends and family. We have designed a universe of possibilities where you can learn, create, innovate, know and develop different dimensions, skills and talents that can accompany you for the rest of your life.

Through dialogue, reflection and presentation of the main themes proposed, and through didactic resources (image, video, mini edition workshop), to propose a context and panorama of the book in culture and universal history, from its beginnings to the present .
