Zum zweiten Mal kommt die internationale Bergbuchausstellung Montagnalibri im Herbst 2007 nach Brig © CIPRA International

Montagnalibri, the international mountain-book fair, is to be held for the second time in Brig in the Valais/CH from 25 to 28 October 2007. BergBuchBrig presents over 1,000 new books from 30 countries in a variety of languages. All the specialist books, literary works, picture books, guides, etc., relate to the world of the mountains.
For over twenty years Montagnalibri has featured new publications about the mountains as part of the Trento Film Festival held every May. This year visitors to Trento were able to browse through 950 books by 300 publishers from 30 countries. Montagnalibri is designed as an itinerant exhibition which, in Italy, also travels to Bolzano and Belluno as well as Trento. In 2006 the exhibition crossed the border for the first time and travelled to Brig in Switzerland. There the exhibition is complemented with new publications from 2007. Besides the exhibition itself there is a vast supporting programme that includes readings, presentations, discussions, slide shows and film screenings. So BergBuchBrig is much more than a book fair; it is a multimedia festival that celebrates nature, culture and leisure activities in the mountains.
