From 8th to 12th March 2018 , “Tempo di libri “, the publishing fair in Milan will take “body”, and for this time, it will “change skin”, as it will be held on an earlier date than last year. But the organizers “aim higher” on this occasion, given that they had not aligned as well before the Turin Book Fair ; therefore, at present they would like to increase the past turnout of 73 thousand visitors in 2017.
News for the book fair
Another novelty of “Tempo di libri” 2018, (produced by the book Factory), is in the location, which this time will be in a new location: in the old Fiera di Milano , or central: Fieramilanocity , at Portello. Another change: the Fair will “host” another director: Andrea Kerbaker , famous manager, but also university professor, writer and founder of Kasa dei Libri (Largo Aldo De Benedetti 4, Milan) , who has created a large space dedicated to books, in the neighborhood that now enjoys a renewed “life”, that is: Isola.
The director will replace the previous Chiara Valerio and will inherit “Time of books”, now eagerly awaited review of the world of reading. Just Kerbaker has been made official at the assembly of the Italian Association of Publishers , and also together with the appointment of the new president of the same, namely:Ricardo Franco Levi. “We will be able to have everyone with joy a wonderful event in Turin, a beautiful in Milan and many others in Bari, Palermo, throughout Italy . One can not be seen to compete with each other,” says Levi.
Last year, the Fair had reached these “numbers”: to start with, it had involved 552 publishers , according to the characters, stories, testimonies and items were then distributed 720 events with 2 thousand guests . Thus, the House of Books, among many adventures (lasting 5 days), had seen 60 participate 796 people in Fiera- Rho , and for another 100 out of the Fuori Fiera offices , 12 others were counted 133 , and to conclude, many attendance had participated in the review that had also guaranteed 1 million views held in streaming.
For these reasons we have even chosen a date that goes away from that of the Turin Motor Show (in order to contrast it more). Meanwhile, we remind you that the Turin Book Fair will be held from 10 to 14 May 2018 . But we wanted to “oppose” this event also at the Salone del Mobile (Milan ) or the Miart . The guide of Kerbaker will hopefully interest even more public, allowing us to glimpse an alternative to the Turin Book Fair, using: authors, different proposals, including even the smallest. This is the intention of the new Book Fair currently hosted in Milan: so come on, numerous! It will really be worth it.
