Una mostra del Museum of London studia le origini di Sherlock Holmes passando per la Londra vittoriana. Che siate fan dello Sherlock della BBC o lettori di Conan Doyle, questa mostra vi farà di certo scoprire qualcosa di nuovo sul grande detective.

Nella mostra “Sherlock Holmes: The Man Who Never Lived and Will Never Die” , la prima sul grande detective dal 1951, il Museum of London usa riprese, foto e quadri insieme ad artefatti provenienti dall’era vittoriana per riportare il pubblico ai tempi della Londra di Holmes.

Attraversate una porta segreta dietro uno scaffale e vi troverete nel mondo di Sherlock Holmes: le illustrazioni del grande Sidney Paget (il disegnatore che ormai identifichiamo con tutte le immagini del detective), scene e poster dai vari film tratti dai libri di Conan Doyle e vari manoscritti accontenteranno anche i fan più tradizionalisti.

Alla mostra troverete il quaderno dove Sir Arthur Conan Doyle aveva iniziato a scrivere “Uno Studio In Rosso” nel 1886 e il cappotto Belstaff indossato da Benedict Cumberbatch nella serie TV BBC.

La mostra, che costa dalle £9 alle £13, è una fantastica opportunità per scoprire qualcosa in più su Sherlock Holmes in un momento in cui gode di ritrovata fama grazie alla serie TV BBC.
