How to find the library

In via Fiori Oscuri there are two other entrances:
at no.2, with a lift for disabled people (in the small round tower on the left in the courtyard, please ring the bell)
at no.4, through the car courtyard; go through the courtyard and then into the hall facing the car passage; the entrance staircase can be found in the corridor on the right, just past the columns.
