The Norberto Bobbio library was established thanks to a generous gift from the Compagnia di San Paolo di Torino and to financial and technical support from the Regione Piemonte. These contributions enabled the acquisition and cataloguing of Bobbio's writings, the compilation of the bibliography and acquisition of the works it contains, as well as the creation of this web site.

Thanks also go to Laura Contini, Franca Ranghino and Piera Tachis for their hard work and expertise in cataloguing the books and compiling the database and to Gianluigi Braggio for his help in designing the web pages.

On-going library maintenance and updates to the bibliography and internet site are overseen by a committee nominated by the board of directors of the "Centro Studi Piero Gobetti". The committee's members are Michelangelo Bovero, Laura Contini, Pietro Polito and Marco Revelli; its meetings are also attended by Norberto Bobbio.

The database of the bibliography was compiled using "Erasmo Enterprise", a computer program which was customized to fit the library's needs by Simonetta Sada at the Turin-based company Centro Servizi. "Centro Servizi" was also responsible for developing the web site.

The work of acquiring and cataloguing the works of Bobbio has relied heavily on Carlo Violi's Bibliografia degli Scritti di Norberto Bobbio (1934 - 1993), Laterza, Roma-Bari, 1995. This volume provides a precious resource for anyone planning study of the complex intellectual output of Bobbio.
