(ANSA) – RAVENNA, JUL 28 – World, people, love. And again: master, mind, Beatrice. These are some of the words that recur most frequently in the Comedy, those that Dante relies on to tell what becomes more and more unspeakable; what “to mean by verb / does not poria” (Par, I, 70-71). Yet Dante takes up the challenge, uniting in his “high fantasy” “and heaven and earth”. A centrality, between words and meaning, that a festival entirely dedicated to the Poet such as ‘Dante2021’ can only make its own, always seeking new approaches to illuminate, between research and dissemination, the path that leads to Dante. Promoted by the Cassa di Risparmio di Ravenna Foundation with the scientific direction of the Accademia della Crusca, from 3 to 11 September the tenth edition of ‘Dante2021’ will offer nine days of meetings, shows and concerts in the heart of the “city of Dante”. Among the guests Mimmo Paladino, Azio Corghi, Virginio Gazzolo, Mario Tozzi, Alessandro Haber, Michele Campanella.
On the final day, the governor of the Bank of Italy, Ignazio Visco, will give a speech on the theme ‘Notes on Dante’s economy and on the events of our times’, Enrico Mentana will receive the Dante-Ravenna 2021 award and Mogol the Parole e Musica award . The festival, which has received the patronage and support of the National Committee for the celebrations of the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death chaired by Carlo Ossola, “confirms its specific nature of ‘intimate’ and at the same time public dialogue with Dante’s text – explains the artistic director Domenico De Martino – We will try to listen to Dante together with all our humanity, tormented, eager for knowledge and doubtful, often sinful, but morally capable of assuming that yes said to life, of projecting itself into that ‘happy virtue’ that the Poet continually puts before our hope “.
