Around the United States we discovered two Italian bookstores that we want to recommend.The people who work there promote Italian culture with great passion and commitment.
I AM Books is an independent bookstore in Boston’s North End neighborhood.
You can read On their Facebook’s page_’The bookstore serves as a cultural hub for locals and visitors interested in diving into the rich world of Italian and Italian American literature, history, research, art and more. Labeled as an “Italian American cultural hub,” I Am Books allows visitors to connect with each other and immerse themselves in Italian and American culture through book signings, small concerts and other events.
Located at 189 North Street, right across the street from the historic Paul Revere House and a few steps away from North Square, I AM Books sells primarily fiction and non-fiction by Italian and Italian American authors, books in Italian, as well as cookbooks and books on travel, history, sports, Italian American studies and titles by local authors. The store also features a children’s section, with books, learning material, games and toys.’
The Pino Library in San Francisco is a small and extraordinary space dedicated to those who love Italian literature. Italian Books in the original language or in English, also available online.
About I recommend you to read ‘San Francisco’s Italian bookstores – past and present’, a review by Catherine Accardi published two years ago on the magazine L’Italo – americano.
In the end we want to report the Italian BookShop in London fundamental and strategic centre to promote the Italian culture, language and literature, in the great capital of the United Kingdom.
