Libreria Acqua Alta

Recommendation by Lemi

Come hell or high water, Libreria Acqua Alta offers refuge to bibliophiles. In a waterlogged city plagued by floods, the bookshop keeps pages dry by gondola, a wooden ship, and a ceramic bathtub. All these are stacked with precious cargo: hundreds of books. Everything is arranged almost haphazardly—like the tide has swept in new books, old tomes, and rare volumes all at the same time. Piles of encyclopedias form a staircase leading outdoors, while random knick-knacks collected by owner, Mr. Luigi Frizzo, are strewn about. The chaos is all part of Libreria Acqua Alta’s charm. Peruse their overwhelming collection and pluck from precarious piles and from under sleeping cats. Your next treasured read is just waiting to be uncovered.
