About the Event


Founded in Mantua in 1975, Mantova Libri Mappe Stampe is the first Italian antique fair for bibliophiles and collectors of ancient books and prints.

Mantova Libri Mappe Stampe inherits the tradition of the longest-running Italian event dedicated to the world of antiquarian books and prints – Il Frontespizio, renowned exhibition created in 1975 in Mantua – with the aim of promoting and spreading the passion for ancient papers.

Over 45 exhibitors, coming from Italy and abroad, confirm their presence at this well-established event, including antiquarian bookshops and professionals in the fields of antiquarian printing and cartography.

The highly qualified exhibition offer and the internationality of the dealers involved make it a key event for lovers of the industry, as well as a unique opportunity for enthusiasts and novices alike.

Historically, the event is held twice a year, in May and September, under the arcades of the cloister of the former Augustinian monastery of S. Agnese, now site of the “Francesco Gonzaga” Diocesan Museum.

With the collaboration of the “Francesco Gonzaga” Diocesan Museum, the Mirabilia association, and the patronage of the City of Mantua. Media partnership:,,
