The fair | I restart from the books: the book fair in Naples

Born in 2014 from the union and idea of ​​three associations: The shop of words, Librincircolo e Arenadiana.

The intent is to enhance a culturally rich territory by speaking of it, but often penalized by the absence of real publishing realities.
