This is the Beautiful Italy’s Smallest Library


“Without a book, so often the child is alone,” says Antonio La Cava.

The retired schoolteacher converted his three-wheeled van into a mobile library, the Bibliomotocarro.

 

Driving the hills and mountains of Basilicata, Italy, La Cava is able to reach children in remote villages like San Paolo Albanese, which only has two children of primary school age.

“I was strongly worried about growing old in a country of non-readers.”

La Cava believes that it’s important to spread the joy of literature to as many children as possible: “carrying out such action has a value, not only social, not only cultural, but has a great ethical meaning.”

La Cava hopes his Bibliomotocarro brings the message that culture is made by and for everyone, not just a privileged few.
