Oba inconstantly curate research projects, bibliographies and thematic selections that transversally cross the collection. At the moment is in a private house in the east side of the city of Rome but soon will move to Venice a few minutes from Rialto bridge.
Inside its walls, books are shared but are not for sale. OBA it's not a bookshop.
