Some days ago I needed a book for my sister who had just finished Ferrante’s Quadrilogy and felt in a kind of grief for the end of the story… I decided to stop by “Piccola Farmacia Letteraria”, a bookshop in my neighborhood that has just opened and everybody has described as “special”.
When I went in, I met Elena and I suddenly asked her for advice. She helped me and we started talking about books — by Ferrante and also about those you love but they make you feel uncomfortable, they hurt you in an emotional but also physical way. We talked about fantasy books, TV series, about buying the shop next to her bookshop for opening a caffè! As you can imagine, I couldn’t leave the shop easily. I would have stayed there all afternoon. Elena is a special girl, go meet her before she conquers the world!
Moreover, this wonderful spot is close to the Gran Cru. So when Elena closes her bookshop, I suggest you have a beer at Francesco’s spot!
