Dante, the pandemic and the Monarchy

Fiorella Retucci's online interview with Andrea Tabarroni.

On the occasion of Dantedì, the Italian Cultural Institute of Cologne, in collaboration with the Italian Academic Forum presents an online interview with Fiorella Retucci  hosted by Andrea Tabarroni titledDante, la pandemia e la Monarchia’ (Dante, the pandemic and the Monarchy).

The Monarchy is the work in which Dante reveals the most about its modernity and which still has a special meaning today in terms of the history of political thought. Dante was one of the first intellectuals to have investigated thoroughly the meaning of the term ‘humanity’ and to have imagined a universal political body, subject to a single authority whose mission is to lead every human being to earthly happiness. In the Monarchy Dante is the spokesperson for a global political project towards every single human belonging to the same world. Dante’s intuition is of particular relevance in view of the global challenges we are facing and that require urgent solutions of universal scope.

The event can be viewed online on the FAI website and on the YouTube channel of the Cologne Institute.
