The libraries of the South have a role, and sometimes even a form, special and different from the others.

They are often places that animate projects that go beyond the borders of the city ghettos and the isolation of the villages, to reach the vast suburbs and schools of the most remote villages with books, educate to legality, overcome the barriers of disability, preserve the memory and the identity of places.

From the tiny library of Stromboli, to tactile books for the blind in Foggia, to writing workshops for children in the central districts of Palermo, up to the visionary project of a three-wheeled library for the most remote villages of Basilicata, Pagine del Sud is a real and imaginary journey through the great variety of territories, resources and problems of education in the South, from the point of view of an unexpected narrator.
