The sound of Dante



The sound of Dante

The Italian Cultural Institute of New York will participate in the 21st week of the Italian language in the world from October 18-24, 2021.

The title of this special week is “Dante, the Italian language” and ad-hoc events will be viewable on
On September 25, 2021, “The sound of Dante” – a project carried out by Mariateresa Sartori in collaboration with Fondazione Querini Stampalia - will be available as an exclusive preview on our platform.

This idea is about a “musical” composition based on the melodious material of the Divine Comedy: Dante’s verses will be read out by the repositioning of consonants, a method that switches the listener’s attention from their semantic level into their rhythm and melody. An unreleased musical piece by Paolo Marzocchi will also be broadcast.


Date: Da Friday, September 24, 2021 a Sunday, October 31, 2021

Organized by : IIC NY

Entrance : Free
