Antonio Ghirelli Fund

In February, 2013 Massimo and Guido Ghirelli, Antonio Ghirelli's sons (Naples 1922 - Rome,2012), decided to donate to the City Council a vast collection of books belonging to their father's library.

In memory of the strong ideological bond that always tied Antonio Ghirelli to Naples and to SanGiovanni a Teduccio neighborhood, writer's sons chose the library of the Municipality as the place where their father's books could be collected.
The Council, by resolution GC no. 377 of 19th April 2013, and accepting Councillor Antonella Di Nocera's proposal, accepted the donation and established "Antonio GirelliFund" at the library "Antonio Labriola" of the 6th Municipalityof Ponticelli, Barra and San Giovanni a Teduccio.

The collection, made of 1379 books, pamphlets and extracts from magazines, "reflects Ghirelli's wide range of intellectual interests and studies", moreover it represents a clear evidence of the writer's love for Naples, freedom and solidarity.
