The tour will last approximately 45 minutes, and it will begin with the visit to the 'New Manica Lunga', the ancient Benedictine dormitory transformed into a library center with a renovation by the architect Michele De Lucchi. With over 1400 linear meters of shelving, the 'New Manica Lunga', today represents the heart of the library complex of the Cini Foundation.

The visit then will continue with a tour of the labyrinth, accessible for the first time, accompanied by an audio guide with the original soundtrack created for this enchanting place by the composer Antonio Fresa, with the Teatro La Fenice Orchestra.
