Milano, Italy,

XXV. International Ex-libris Congress, Milano, Italy,
6-10 September, 1994

Milano was a place within easy reach for Europeans. Giuseppe Mirabella and his team organised it efficiently, with 240 participants involved. The delegates' meeting admitted the Estonian, Slovak and Hong Kong societies, as well as the Slovenian association and the Belgrade Ex-libris Circle (following the dismembering of former Yugoslavia). At this congress one noted the increase in the practice of selling bookplates (especially by artists).
