Sandro Bonaiuto sculpture of Dante at Italian Cultural Garden heralds a giant of Western culture

Sandro Bonaiuto sculpture of Dante at Italian Cultural Garden heralds a giant of Western culture | Dante's Inferno | Scoop.it

By Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer

 

"Newly dedicated sculpture of Dante Alighieri was $130,000 project. Dante is widely regarded as the father of the modern Italian language because his masterpiece, “The Divine Comedy,” established the dialect of Tuscany as the dominant mode of communication across the Italian boot, which it still is today. Read the story to discover the secrets of the classic symbolism included in the design."

Dante’s Church

Dante’s Church | Dante's Inferno | Scoop.it

The tiny church of Santa Margherita, located on via Santa Margherita just off of Piazza Cimitori is called Dante’s church because it is said to be where he first met the love of his life Beatrice, as well as where he married his wife, Gemma Donati.
Beatrice Portinari was known to have been the muse of Dante Alighieri. He writes of Beatrice in his most famous work, The Divine Comedy.Beatrice is buried in the church and there is a marker commemorating her life.The church is tiny and not easy to find, but if you go to the House of Dante and follow the small street that runs down the side of it, you will see it under the eve of the right before you go through the arch. It is opened from 8:30-12:30 and 5-7 p.m. daily. There is no entrance fee.

Translating Dante | Hold That Thought

Translating Dante | Hold That Thought | Dante's Inferno | Scoop.it

In literature classes, we often turn back to study "classics" that are hundreds of years old, and while the core message of these works remain intact, the once-contemporary references to politics, the snide remarks about rivals, and the nuances of a word that has since taken on another meaning can go whizzing past our heads unless we are given notes and annotations to explain. How, then, can we make these texts as funny and engaging for modern audiences as they were for the original readers? Or should we allow these texts to become literary artifacts? Mary Jo Bang, poet and professor of English at Washington University in St. Louis, explores the process she undertook in her recent translation of Dante Alighieri's Inferno, while Jessica Rosenfeld, medievalist and associate professor of English, explains why the Middle Ages are the origins of literature as we know it.

In addition to the interview, you can find below a reading selection from Inferno: A New Translation and a reading list based on the episode.

The Nine Circles of Scientific Hell

The Nine Circles of Scientific Hell | Dante's Inferno | Scoop.it

"The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri is a classic of world literature and was the first major work in the Italian language. In the first book of the trilogy, Inferno, Dante offers a tour of the nine increasingly horrible levels of Hell, in which the wicked are tormented forever in ways corresponding to their sins. But Dante lived before the era of modern science. Perhaps it is necessary to update his scheme to explain what happens to those guilty of various scientific sins, ranging from the commonplace to the shocking"

The article is great and if you like to read... then you can Explore Dan Brown's and Dante's Florence with a guide to the key sights of Florentine mystery and scandal.

Characterised by the huge domed cupola of the cathedral rising out of the dense, rustic-coloured city nestled in the Tuscan hills, Florence is overflowing with history, culture and artistic patrimony. If you fancy following in the footsteps of Professor Langdon and discovering Dante's legacy in the city, head for the following sights with the help of the map provided. All of them make an appearance in the novel and all have been the site of real-life intrigue and scandal over the centuries.
