Tempo di Libri
Milan, Italy
Start Date: 19 April, 2017
End Date: 23 April, 2017

A Trade Fair in which publishers, literary festivals, magazines and newspapers have been invited to participate as event publishers. At Tempo di Libri, publishing means expressing a cultural design. Tempo di Libri is a scene, from A to Z, in which every reader and every curious person can create his/her own alphabet, and use those letters to make words, and those words to do everything. It is the same idea that inspired Magoz, the international illustrator who, requested to design the image of the Book Fair, represented the book by summarising everything that it has been and will always be, namely a window, a door, a cosy place and much more.
