From tomorrow a new Mondadori Bookstore will be open in Rome, at the AURA shopping mall, the large shopping hub opened in the Valle Aurelia area, just a short distance from the Vatican City.
With more than 15,000 titles on sale and an offer of events ranging from meetings with leading protagonists from the world of books and music to children’s workshops, the new Mondadori bookshop will be a point of reference for readers and visitors to the centre and place to discover a world of culture and emotions.

Inside the bookshop there is also a Mondadori Café, with seating for 35 customers, open all day, from breakfast time until the evening cocktail hour, with healthy gourmet products, and special attention to the needs of children.
