About 300 people attended the opening of the MatriArchiv. Only rarely so many people met in the Cantonal Library Vadiana. After the lecture by Christina Schlatter in the concert hall, the guests visited the library. The rooms filled with bright colors and multi-lingual voices and the guests enjoyed the evening in the Matriarchatsbibliothek.
