Address: viale strozzi, piazza adua , Florence - Historical CenterDate: Saturday 18 February 2017
The event "Florence Open Book", the first book festival in the city of Florence, will take place on 17/18/19 in February 2017 at the Hall Spadolini in the Fortezza da Basso.
The event, for many revolutionary aspects of form and substance, has among its objectives the creation of a real event open, dynamic and shared around the book and the active involvement of small and medium publishers in synergy with the big publishing house in order to create profitable interactions among all the components of the overall editorial process.
First of all the result that the more we want to achieve is a dramatic reduction in rental prices related to the exhibition, so that all news organizations can participate by gaining their presence and not, as is usual, to go home with passive also remarkable. Large groups, as well as small publishing companies, will have the opportunity to participate in an event of international scope without having to incur excessive expenses and therefore not recoverable, except in small part, by the sale of its books during the days of fair.
They will then practiced extremely competitive prices around the rental of exhibition space by reducing by 70-90% the overall participation rate compared to all other national and international festivals that are held in Italy.
Another distinctive feature will be available in a large open space of the exhibition areas of the publishing houses, no longer divided into watertight compartments, with small publishers relegated to just the prestigious areas or strategically unsatisfactory.
Small publishing houses and large publishing groups will be arranged contiguously next to each other, facilitating the flow inside the pavilion in various directions, even the most "peripheral".
