Book lovers?

The library was founded by King Charles Albert (1798-1849), a man most would find hard to describe as handsome. However, he was determined to turn his kingdom into a beacon of progress and erudition. His ancestors had been ardent collectors of books, since King Victor Amadeus II of Carignano (1666-1732) had donated many precious volumes to the University of Turin, while the French army, where king Charles‚Äô father had served, had ‚Äúcollected‚ÄĚ many more during the city‚Äôs occupation in the early 19th century. Nevertheless, the royal collection still included dozens of precious incunabula (books predating 1501) and thousands of 16th-century volumes forming the nucleus of the new library.

Leonidas Argyros

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
