Opicino e Dante Alighieri

From 15 May 2021, the AR.VI.MA. cultural association in Pavia and the Embassy of Italy in Santo Domingo work together to create a virtual exhibition on Dante. The exhibition includes documentary material on the figure of Opicino de Canistris, an illustrious writer, miniaturist and calligrapher from Pavia who lived at the time of Dante and with whom he shares historical and artistic analogies.

Pupils and teachers of AR.VI.MA. School in Pavia developed multimedia contaminations between Dante’s journey and the famous ‘visionary maps’ of Opicino. Medieval symbolism meets the contemporary world with suggestions from the digital world, fiction and social media.

More information is available on the website of the Embassy of Italy in Santo Domingo.
