It will be the most highly anticipated event of the 27th LuccAutori Literary Festival, scheduled in Lucca from September 18 to October 3. A contemporary art exhibition entitled "Dante, 7 volte 100", (Dante, 7 times 100) dedicated to the Supreme poet, curated by Stefano Giraldi. The exhibition will be inaugurated on Saturday September 25 at 10 am in the magnificent rooms of Villa Bottini in Lucca. It will see the participation of numerous contemporary artists who will honour Dante on the 700th anniversary of his death.
The contemporary artists of the "Dante 7 volte 100" exhibition visually translate Dante's poem and Dante himself into an expression of forms, faces, gestures and attitudes, with an artistic dialectic granted by the rare quality of Dante's genius.
