“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ―Nelson Mandela
Articoli Liberi is a nonprofit organization based in the south of France, born to diffuse free books amid high school students.
We are a group of friends, all different from each other, but united by a big passion: reading. A book keeps in its pages the ideas of the person who wrote it, but also those of the person who reads it and will speak about it. For this exchange of ideas, we started exchanging books.
Our mission is to offer free books to schools all over the world. We print and distribute for free, and we use the proceeds from the online sales to print extra copies. The objective is to join as more students as we can and pass down the importance of reading to the new generation.
Reading can help us overcome this disastrous social moment and teach us how to protect ourselves from the modern politics of hate and obsessive competition. Reading can help us change the way we see the world, but also the way the world sees us.
We aim to promote stories of authors that show a great attachment to their city of birth and can describe it better than any tourist guide. Books with an intelligent critical approach to the problems of modern society.
We think that we have a responsibility: to guarantee the quality of every text before offering it to the students. Therefore, we decided to publish books that have been positively reviewed; enriching stories, considered of pedagogical and cultural value. In one word: nice books.
