Description:
The National University Library (Biblioteca nazionale universitaria in Italian) in Turin, Italy, is one of the country's main libraries.

It was founded in 1720 as the Royal University Library by Victor Amadeus II, who unified collections from the library of the University of Turin and from the library of the Dukes of Savoy. It was re-named as the National Library in 1872, after Italian unification.

In 1904 a fire destroyed thousands of books and manuscripts from the library.

At present time it owns over 1 million books, 12,000 periodicals, 3,700 manuscripts and 1,600 incunabula.
