Dickens in Florence

2 February 2022 - 18:00

Wednesday Lecture, on Zoom and at the British Institute Library

by  Mark Roberts


Charles Dickens visited Florence in the spring of 1845, during the tour of Italy he made with his wife and five children. Mark Roberts thinks that he has discovered everything possible about this visit, and has made a collection of images to illustrate it. At the end of his life, Dickens maintained that his memories of Florence remained vivid in his mind like those of no other city.
