The Library

 

''A room without books is like a body without a soul'"

Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

The library is the heart of Adaia in which to remote, reset, reflect and recollect or just read...

 

Meticulously chosen books in ceiling high monumental bookshelves in the core of a transparent glass cubus, clashed around  exquisite puristic furniture. The spine of the library the stone wall is enriched with  contemporary art peaces, putting a contemporary twist on tradition. 

 

And, you are very wellcome to join us, anytime, leave a book somewhere for someone to take for free. Be participated with us from the beginning. If you do so, we will be grateful.  If you forget the bookmark, that is ok, just leave a book and hope that someone, somewhere read. 

 

In Borges’s classic story, the entire universe is a library, a infinite labyrinth, which contains all books — that is, every possible ordering of letters and symbols, so that one full book of gibberish might differ from another only in the placement of a single comma. “Perhaps my old age and fearfulness deceive me,” Borges’s narrator muses at the story’s end, “but I suspect that the human species — the unique species — is about to be extinguished, but the Library will endure: illuminated, solitary, infinite, perfectly motionless, equipped with precious volumes, useless, incorruptible, secret.” Sigh.
