Japan is the guest country, with a program covering various book launches, debates on classic works of Japanese literature and events looking at the country’s popular culture.

More than 100,000 visitors are expected at this year’s edition, which features events for children, industry debates, film screenings, and more, the organizers said.

Entrance to the event, which takes place at Romexpo’s Pavilion B2, is free of charge. Visiting hours are between 10:00 and 20:00 on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday (June 1, 2, 5) and 10:00 and 21:00 on Friday and Saturday (June 3, 4).
