Dante. The Eternal Poet by Felice Limosani in the Monumental Complex of Santa Croce
September 14, 2021 through January 10, 2022
Dante. Felice Limosani's Eternal Poet arrives at the Complesso Monumentale di Santa Croce in Florence from September 14, 2021 to January 10, 2022. An extraordinary project in which humanistic culture and digital languages come together.
Through the digitization of the majestic cycle of 135 nineteenth-century engravings by Gustave Dorè representing Dante's otherworldly journey from Hell to Paradise, the artist Felice Limosani has built a path that will cross the sacredness of the Pazzi Chapel, the architecture of the Cloister of Brunelleschi and the Last Supper of Santa Croce.
Backlit and animated high-definition images and virtual reality viewers will offer visitors an intimate yet contemporary experience. The Dante project will not "explain" the Divine Comedy but will "narrate" Dante, his human adventure, the relevance of his universal message, his cultural, moral and spiritual legacy.
In the same location of the Santa Croce complex, the review that ideally closes the Etsate Fiorentina, Genius Loci, will follow from 23 to 25 September, involving artists and personalities such as the writer Dacia Maraini, the writer and enigmist Stefano Bartezzaghi, the singer and poly instrumentalist Elina Duni, the artist Letizia Renzini, the duo composed by the singer Ginevra di Marco and the poet Franco Arminio, the saxophonist Dimitri Grechi Espinosa and the photographer Paolo Ninfa, the musician John Greaves, standard bearer of the progressive scene of Canterbury, the writer and playwright Stefano Massini accompanied by the Whisky Trail, the live of Oliphantre, the Ghimel Trio.
