Elena Kostioukovitch hosted the team of a Russian TV cultural programme in her home in Milan. She recorded a long interview about her grandfather Leonid Volynsky and his activity during WWII. Volynsky acted as an important "Monuments man" in Dresden and was one of the key figures in the recovery of the old masters' paintings occulted by the Nazis. Elena dedicated to those events her historical thriller "Zwinger" (Russian title) recently published in Italy as "Sette notti" (Bompiani 2014).
