Books are extremely compelling objects. As constantly exposed to visual stimuli in a hyper-connected world, they still have the power to spark imagination, creating a private space for reflection.

In the last few years, Gio became a passionate reader, eager to buy more (physical) books than he can read.

His library is the result of his enthusiasm towards design, art, and the perpetual study of how the current interaction with technology is shaping the human condition.
