ITALY: BOOKCROSSING BOXES
This year our Institute has decided to create an installation to be placed inside a bookshop, twinned with our school, called "Vicolo stretto" .
It has been planned to build a "bookcrossing box" that will later positioned in the area where our school is and our students live.
The idea was born from the desire to create a small open and shared reading space.
We want to share the philosophy of "bookcrossing" and follow the three basic principles: passion for reading, willingness to share culture, freedom of initiative.
