Dante’s Florence

A lecture by Alexandra Lawrence



Imposing tower houses, warring factions, plague, floods, intrigue, power  and poetry: this is Dante’s Florence. Alexandra Lawrence takes us deep into this world and visits some of the great poet’s haunts, including Santa Croce, the Badia Fiorentina, Dante's ‘house’  and the Baptistery. Illustrated with images and captivating passages from the Divine Comedy, we will immerse ourselves fully  in Dante’s Florentine life.
