Amor librorum: the bibliophilia

Bibliofilia
Bibliophilia, love of books. That is the passion in reading and collecting books, usually paying particular attention to the quality of the edition, the rarity, etc.. Writer and journalist Arrigo Cajumi gives an amusing definition: "Bibliophiles are not born, they become. It's a vice that comes with age, with the first money, with the feeling that you are going to descend the curve, and it is appropriate not to neglect even the smallest and simplest pleasures. In Italy, Umberto Eco embodied the figure of the bibliophile par excellence, collecting about 1200 ancient books and accumulating 30,000 for his "modern work library", so much so as to have been the subject of discussion for a long time. The Aldus Club - the International Association of Bibliophilia - operates in Milan and has recently promoted the Aldus Club Award, an annual award to encourage young collectors. And let's not forget the love motto of the Antiquarian Booksellers' Association: "Amor librorum nos unit", a hymn to the love of the ancient book.
