During my visit in Italy I travelled towards the republic of San Marino.
San Marino is still a monumental place to visit and a memorable mark of ancient times. The garden tower reaches high above the hill where San Marino was build on. It’s a unique village with all the well known marks of a fortress.
The big defending wall’s mark the heavy battles this village was in. The outstanding town gate gives you an entrance the same if you where a king. The architecture within the town wall’s takes you back several hundred year’s. Dozen of small streets give you a travel back in time, for me the momentum towards my quest.
My goal, the San Marino library. For any collector a must within these wall’s !
After a few conversations with the head librarian we became a lot of useful information. We had the opportunity to examine an amount of library books in search for answers. With a lot of help from the librarians we found what we where looking for. Some artists who made these wonderful artefacts.
