A documentary immersion into all things Eco, Davide Ferrario’s film takes us on a tour of Umberto Eco’s private library, guided by the author himself. Combining new footage with material he shot with Eco in 2015 for a video installation for the Venice Biennale, Ferrario documents this incredible collection and the man who amassed it. As Eco leads us among the more than 50,000 volumes and his family reflects on his legacy, we also gain insight into the library of the mind of this vastly prolific and original thinker.

Umberto Eco: A Library of the World celebrates the man and his many bookshelves… a diverting and often enlightening pursuit.”
-Nicolas Rapold, The New York Times

“Lively and engaging…The best way to explore Eco’s world is via his actual body of work, and this picture made me want to revisit some of his literary labyrinths immediately.”
-Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
