Introduction (English)

By | April 23rd, 2017|Inglese|0 Comments

England, during Dante’s time, was ruled by the Plantagenets and it represented a very important trade partner, insomuch that Florence had set up a money exchange branch in London. Reference is often made in the Divine Comedy to people and events pertaining to British history, leading some illustrious nineteenth-century Dante scholars to become convinced that Dante had been to London and had even studied at Oxford. The last upholder of this belief, today considered without foundations, was William E. Gladstone (1809-1898) politician and several times [...]

Introduction (Russian)

By | February 15th, 2017|Russo|0 Comments

Dante could only have had a very superficial idea about distant Russia which in his time was under the dominion of Genghis Khan’s mongols, or rather by his successors since the great monarch had died about forty years before Dante’s birth.  But Dante must have been able to have had a less imprecise knowledge of at least the region of the Crimea and the river Don, known originally as Tanai, since the maritime republics, especially Venice and Genoa, had close commercial contacts with that region.

And still the mode offends me

By | August 7th, 2016|Video|0 Comments

A theatrical presentation (in Italian) of social commitment, about the terrible problem of femicide and violence against women, stemming not by chance from Dante’s verses dedicated to Francesca da Rimini, and unfolding in a dialogue between a slightly eccentric professor and a willing lady pupil who aspires to become a lecturer in education about gender equality and emotional feelings […]

OCCITAN-PROVENÇAL – Dario Anghilante

By | July 30th, 2016|The voices of Ulysses|0 Comments

Dario Anghilante was born in 1947 in Sampeyre (Sant Peire in Occitan) in Valle Varaita, one of the Alpine valleys in the provinces of Turin, Cuneo and Imperia in the Italian area of Occitan language and culture.  This territory is no more than the eastward extension of the Langue d’Oc area which incorporates all of southern France and a Pyrrhenean valley, the Val d’Aran, under Catalonian administration.  As a matter of interest, we should add to the list the municipality of Guardia Piemontese in the [...]

OCCITAN-PROVENÇAL – Rosella Pellerino

By | July 27th, 2016|The voices of Francesca|0 Comments

I was born in 1972 and have always lived in Borgo San Dalmazzo, a municipality of the Valle Stura in the province of Cuneo in Alpine Occitania.  The Piedmont dialect, widespread in that area and similar to that which is spoken by my family on my father’s side, was a part of my childhood mixed up with the one spoken by my family on my mother’s side, which in those days I did not realise was Occitan. Having completed my schooling specialising in classical studies, [...]
