If ÓPLA is a place for collecting, then ÓPLab is for connecting. This unique space in Merano hosts events and workshops for children and adults, a bookshop and a small café. All with a single purpose: to further enhance the artist’s book as a tool for knowledge, creativity and learning. The treasures of the archive and the rich universe of illustrated children’s books will pave the way, the rest will be done by all the people who pass through ÓPLab.
