Introduction to the Medieval Italian Poet Dante Alighieri
by
Deborah Lo Scalzo and Simona Pinton

The public is invited to attend this introduction to Dante Alighieri, the author of Divina Comedia and La Vita Nuova. The poet’s work summarizes the literature, philosophy, science, and religion of the medieval era. The intensity of his experiences, the splendor of his expression, and the depth of his spiritual and philosophic insight, embodies and transcends an era of human history.
La Vita Nuova is the integration of desire aroused by beauty and longing of the soul for divine splendor, for Beatrice.
