Dante’s verses about the death of Count Ugolino, contained in Cantos XXXII (124-139) and XXXIII (1-90) of Hell, were translated in 1886 into Sanskrit shlokas, the typical Indian epic verse, by A. Farinelli. Mr Farinelli was a professor of Italian language at University College, London, but we have no further information about him.  It is a rather rare and unknown document, so we publish it entirely.
