    and the Municipality of Copenhagen

    The Divine Comedy is a sacred poem by the Italian maximum poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), comprising three parts, Inferno (Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory) and Paradiso (Paradise). Each of these are composed of 33 canti, plus an introductory canto. Altogether there are 100 canti, nearly 150,000 verses, written somewhere between 1307 and 1320. The Divine Comedy is more than a literary monument for the Western culture: it is a reference. Even for those who have never read it, this text makes sense and seems like a mythical country in which you visit the underworld, dreading punishments, in which you go through paradise, searching for the divine revelation. Many writers and artists have been fascinated by this text, its images, visions, hallucinations, the breadth of its registers (amorous, mystical, erudite, allegorical, political, poetical…). Many have wanted to translate it, to spread its treasures. A masterpiece of world literature which has accompanied thousands of generations in their growth and formation.
