Salaborsa is the main public library in Bologna, region of Emilia-Romagna, Italy.
In 2001, the central offices of the public library were moved into the northern portions of the Palazzo d'Accursio, flanking the Piazza del Nettuno, which is just north of the Piazza Maggiore. Visitors to the library are able to see an archaeological site through the crystal floor in the centre of the library. The ancient ruins are also accessible from the basement floor, where there is information about them.

It’s great place for everyone. There’s also coffee shop inside if you want a light snack or breakfast. There’s a free wifi access but not all areas were covered. There’s also a little remains of ruins of the past underground that you can visit, they don’t asking you for any fees just some maybe donations that you can afford to give. If you run out of cellphone batteries for instance, there’s a lot of outlet that you can freely charge. Computers are also available to use, just ask in the information. If you need to use the toilet, you need a library card, but if you don’t have one there’s still toilets that charge you 1euro.

Some time ago the stock exchange was housed here, now the building has been transformed into a public library. The entrance is free

Much cooler than the cathedral. Thus turn of the century building is in thr great condition and actually is in the great contrast to the rest of the central square. Some of the public rooms have such fancy items as replicas of Arne Jacobsen's Egg chair. (go Scandinavia!)

Very nice building with a lot of charm. It is like a dive into the history of Bologna. You can have a look on the leftovers of the town thorugh a glass floor.
