From Hell to the Empyrean Sky. Dante’s World between Science and Poetry
Vom  16. Nov 2021  bis  30. Jan 2022
An exhibition framing Dante’s scientific skills in the culture of his time

Taking its cue from Galileo’s academic lectures on the measurement and site of Dante’s Inferno – where the scientist defined the poet “chorographer and architect” – the exhibition, conceived by the Museo Galileo of Florence, will frame Dante’s scientific skills in the culture of his time, tracing the profile of the poet as a physicist, abbacist, “geométra”, “geologist”, and cosmographer. The sections of the exhibition ideally replicate the tripartite division of the Divine Comedy.

The exhibition features large three-dimensional models, immersive multimedia projections, high-definition facsimiles of manuscripts and original works that include paintings, drawings, prints and world maps with the representation of the earthly paradise.
