A Londra con Virginia Woolf e Sherlock Holmes   
Cristina Marconi and Enrico Franceschini in conversation   
chaired by Florinda Fiamma (Rai Radio 3)   
In Italian   

Kensington and Bloomsbury, a walk to the shops to buy a pencil, the sounds of Orlando skating on an icy river Thames with his Russian Princess...Virginia Woolf was told to leave London by her doctors, but London always featured in her writings. Cristina Marconi explores the city tracing her steps, while Enrico Franceschini takes on a journey through the London of Sherlock Holmes, from 221b Baker Street, to the Langham Hotel where Conan Doyle met Oscar Wilde to the St Bartholomew Hospital where he staged the fictional meeting of the detective with his trusted friend Dr Watson.
The new series Passaggi di Dogana, by Giulio Perrone Editore, takes us to cities and regions around the world through the eyes of different authors, as told by contemporary writers and journalists.
