The History of the Library

The Library of the Accademia della Crusca is the only one in Italy to be specialized in Italian language and linguistics. It is composed of a comprehensive collection of classics (of literature, philosophy, law, sciences, history and art) and of a wide selection of dictionaries, grammar books and Italian and foreign journals. This conspicuous heritage has been growing up since the foundation of the Accademia: along the different locations wherein the Crusca established, the Academicians conceived the library fund as a necessary study instrument, in particular to work in philology and lexicography (the most important and peculiar activities of the history of Accademia).
