Hello Angels,

  • Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita

  • Mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,

  • Che la diritta via era smarrita


  • Midway upon the journet of our life

  • I found myself within a forest dark,

  • For the straightgorward pathway had been lost.

Everyone who is interested in literature should know Dante Alighieri. 700 years have passed since Dante’s death but his work Divine Comedy is still very important and popular work.

Dante Alighieri was an Italian writer and considered the father of the Italian language. The Divine Comedy is one of the greatest masterpieces of world literature.

In the Divine Comedy, Dante takes a journey through Hell (Inferno) and then up to the mountain of Purgatory (Purgatorio) and up to Paradise (Paradiso).

In the poem, Dante is accompanied by three guides Virgil, Bearice and Saint Bernard of Clairvaux.

To celebrate the seventh centenary of the death of Italian author Dante Alighieri, the Scuderie del Quirinale, Rome presents ‘Inferno’ exhibition.
