‘Dante’s Commedia: An audacious ‘cammin’ ‘ is the title of a webinar organized by the Department of Italian Studies at the University of Sydney, in collaboration with the Australian Catholic University and the Italian Cultural Institute of Sydney.
The event, which will be held on 4 October, is an opportunity to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, which took place on the night between 13 and 14 September 1321.
Prof. Diana Glenn from the Australian Catholic University will guide the audience in the discovery of the exiled poet, the exul inmeritus, who according to Professor Glenn owes the particularity and simultaneous universality of his poetic approach precisely to this condition. It expresses both a localised sense of place, as well as taking the reader on a journey to the boundless reaches of the cosmos, calling on his remembered experience of real-life events and personalising the poetic journey in a way unprecedented for its time.
