The origins of Library Bazzani Stampe Antiche can be traced back to a passion that has become a job: the passion for books and antique prints.
We started to feel the desire to make that passion a profession when Studio Bibliografico Bazzani opened in 1998. Research, study of printmaking techniques, capturing the various bibliographies, time, study and patience have helped us to create the solid specific knowledge in this field that has always characterized the Bazzani Antique Prints.
In 1995 we opened our first small shop very close to the Scaligeri’s Tombs in Verona. This was the first step in a process that has led us to be a permanent presence for the city of Verona, and to make us a reference point for collectors and bibliophiles that, during the ages after that day, we have been able to create, heal and grow with us.
In 1999 we felt the desire to grow up and have more space. So we moved to the nearby Via Ponte Nuovo into a bigger shop. In this new context, two important steps were made. The first one: we started the publication of paper catalogs of our collections to be sent to the most loyal customers. The second one: in 2002 we opened our internet website. We built a website easy to be reached and simply to navigate in order to reach a wider audience.
