Augusto Bastianini's panels for the Divine Comedy once again illustrated by Italian artists, Florence, Fratelli Alinari, 1902 -1903

Augusto Bastianini, born in Monteguidi (Casole d’Elsa) in 1875, is one of the sixty artists who participated in the illustration of the Divine Comedy edited by Vittorio Alinari and published in Florence in 1902-1903.

The Civic Archaeological and Collegiate Museum of Casole d'Elsa, which houses a permanent collection of Bastianini's works, is promoting a didactic exhibition during the year of celebrations for Dante, aimed at investigating and promoting the bond between the master and, more generally, with Florentine painting by the early twentieth century with the poem, which has always been a source of inspiration for artists.

The exhibition will display the images that accompany the 23rd canto of Purgatorio and the 16th of Paradise, dedicating particular insights to the protagonists met by Dante in the two verses: his own ancestor Cacciaguida, and his friend Forese, who upon recognizing the poet exclaims: "What grace is this". (“Qual grazia m’è questa”).
