Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale in Florence, Italy

The National Central Library, called Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, is the largest in Italy and, since 1870, it has housed all new Italian publications. Despite the loss of one-third of its collection during the 1966 Arno River flood, it contains over 5 ½ million books and some manuscripts dating back to when the library was founded in 1714 by Antonio Magliabechi.
