Indeed it does look amazing! And plus, it contains publications in the English language - mostly on art but no wonder since it is an integral part of one of Rome's leading exhibition centers. The Bookàbar Bookshop is located in the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, the largest inter-disciplinary exhibition area in central Rome: over 10,000 square metres on three floors. The Palazzo also includes a cinema, an auditorium (a multi-media hall with seating for 90 people) and a Forum. Other services include a restaurant and Bookàbar - a bookshop and a café - located in an amazing space definitely worth a visit.

The large Bookàbar bookshop, designed by architect Firouz Galdo, occupies an area of about 450 square metres and consists of three large rooms: two devoted to books, catalogues, music CDs and DVDs – national and international mainly about art but also architecture and design, and particularly rich in subject matter connected with the Palazzo exhibitions; the third, connected to the other rooms, sells dedicated merchandising, closely following current trends. The bookshop has an independent entrance from Via Milano, at the corner of Via Nazionale, making it independent from the exhibition area.

Are photos allowed in this bookstore?

When we were there almost 2 years ago, we took some photos - no one seemed to mind, and I don't think there were any signs around saying no picture taking is allowed, so YES, I guess photos are allowed there :)
