Godi, Fiorenza! Dante’s Poetic (and other) Feelings about Florence

10 February 2021 - 18:00

Virtual Wednesday Lecture, on Zoom

by Alexandra Lawrence


Dante’s dramatic love/hate relationship with Florence has fascinated the world for centuries. Exiled in 1302 over a political fight, the sommo poeta both excoriates and expresses extraordinary nostalgia for his hometown in his masterwork, The Divine Comedy. This talk by Italian art and language expert, Alexandra Lawrence, will look at Dante and his multitude of emotions about his ‘Fiorenza’.


This event is part of the official 700 Dante Firenze celebrations
