Abstract

In the wide and varied scenery of detective and horror stories set in Tuscany by their Tuscan authors, women’s writing has an independent and original slot, finding its way into different anthologies of detective tales published in the last two decades. This article, in the form of a concise and general outline, without claiming exhaustiveness, focuses on three female writers of Florence crime novels: Magdalen Nabb, Linda Di Martino, and Lucia Bruni. The image of a two-faced Florence emerges from their stories: “Fiorenza bella” hides a heart of darkness.
