Casa Belvedere Presents Visions of Dante
Virtual program led by Carla Gambescia
Tuesday, March 22 at 7 pm

Dante Alighieri is perhaps the greatest poet to have ever lived, and his La Divina Commedia is universally considered one of the very finest works of world literature.

To celebrate Dante Di’ (celebrated worldwide on March 25), we present a visually stunning lecture that explores Dante’s prodigious genius, how he mapped eternity, and the enormity of his legacy. We will also examine many extraordinary works of art and the artists behind them – including Botticelli, William Blake and Salvatore Dali – that his magnum opus inspired over the centuries.
