Dante Alighieri is one of the symbols of Italy itself and without a doubt the country’s best known poet beyond its shores. Often seen as the father of Italian language, his masterpiece, the Divine Comedy, describes his (imaginary) journey through hell, purgatory and paradise, encountering a host of incredible characters and experiences along the way.
Through his writings, Dante transports us back to the Middle Ages. As we see the many places he travelled through his eyes, his journey becomes our journey!
