Foresiana Library

Portoferraio
Via Garibaldi n° 10

The Foresiana Library was born when Napoleon I donated his library to the town in 1815. Around 1920 Mario Foresi donated numerous documents and the library took his name. Later there were other donations by Giorgio Roster and Alberto Reiter. The library owns manuscripts and works of great historic, artistic and mineral interest about the Island of Elba. There is also a collection of rare and precious editions from 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.

The Foresiana is a large collection but the 20,000 “cinquecentine” are the most interesting group. The Library has the precious herbarium of Joseph Antoir among its documents: the “Herbier di Antoir” completed around the years 1810-1830, includes plants from the Island of Elba, Tuscany, Egypt, Siberia and China.
