Dante in the world‘ is a streaming project by the Centro per il libro e la lettura (Centre for Books and Reading) with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, in collaboration with La Lettura magazine by Italy’s Corriere della Sera newspaper. This initiative goes beyond simply reading Dante’s works, but rather offers interpretive performances, musical readings, monologues and depictions; a collective experience involving writers, actors, artists, scholars and Dante experts by profession and by passion.

Two online events a day will be held from 21 to 24 March 2021, followed by four on 25 March, organised by the Italian Cultural Institutes of Munich, Berlin, London, Madrid, Rabat, Tunis, Moscow, Warsaw, Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco and Rio de Janeiro, in addition to a number of special initiatives, organised for the final day on 25 March.

The idea behind this project is to break down distances and unite people through the strength and wonder of Dante’s works; ‘Dante in the world’ will be streamed live on the Facebook pages of the the Italian Cultural Institutes involved.
