Antonio La Cava is a retired school teacher. He has transformed his 3-wheeler into a tiny mobile library to get the chance of reading books to children in the remote places of Italy. He has been doing this for more than ten years. He drives through each of these villages, stopping, chatting to the local people, and then offering children a book each.

He loves reading and the power he has of the written word is touching. He carries a collection of exercise books. Kids have to write the first chapter of a story, then he collects the books and takes them to the next village and another group of youngsters are invited to write the second chapter.

The images below of Antonio and his rather long-windedly named ‘bibliomotocarro’ which literally breaks down as Biblio + moto + carro so in English, that’s library/books + scooter + cart is brilliant.
