An exhibition in Helsinki revisits Dante’s Inferno through comics.
Dante 700 nel mondo logo
To celebrate the 700th anniversary of the poet’s death, the
is dedicating a comic exhibition to Italian Cultural Institute of Helsinki Dante’s Divine Comedy.
In the last century there have been numerous
Italian comics that have either depicted Dante or taken inspiration from his most famous work. Some of these are educational, intended as a fun supplement to school work; others are humorous or satirical, utilising the images and metamorphoses of the’ Inferno’ to poke fun at contemporary society; others still are adventure-oriented, or place the protagonists of the poem in scenarios that would be worthy of modern horror fiction.
Twelve comic strips reinterpreting Dante’s inferno and its cast of characters, spanning across different genres and eras. The exhibition is curated by
MaMaComics and Alberto Brambilla, a contributor to the comic news and culture website Fumettologica.
