Indicating “Dante”


Masterpiece of world literature The Divine Comedy has an illustrious past of readers, often actors, who have given body and voice to the Florentine poet’s itinerarium mentis. The performance embraces the story of Paolo and Francesca, the two lovers who find themselves in the ranks of the “dead for love”, then pausing in the first canto of Purgatory, a moment of transition and a fundamental rite of Dante’s comedy, a crossing place that profoundly links Dante to tradition classic through the figure of Cato and ends in the vision of light of the thirty-third canto of Paradise.

INFERNO – Canto I: self-love and the best life. Canto V as compassionate exaltation and never condemnation of carnal love (Paolo and Francesca). Canto XXVI, the love of knowledge and cultural curiosity (Ulysses). Canto I of PURGATORY: love of freedom – Cato. Canto XXXIII of PARADISE, as a grandiose conclusion in the absolute and ineffable love for the Divinity that moves everything.
