Oltre il Confine – Frankfurt International Book Fair
The Frankfur International Book Fair is regarded as the most prestigious book fair in Europe and takes place every year in October. It was founded in 1949.
It starts today, although for the first three days the visits will be reserved for booksellers, students, professors and journalists, while 12 and 13 October will be open to the public.
Each of the ten pavilions of the Fair, some of which were organized on two or three levels, is dedicated to a geographic area or commodity specific.
The numbers of the Book Fair in Frankfurt are staggering: an average of 280,000 visitors in recent years.
This year’s guest of honor is Brazil (last year New Zealand)
