Dante 2021: Florence celebrates the Supreme Poet with events and exhibitions

2021 in Florence will be a very special year: in fact, it is the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, an icon in the world of Italian linguistic wealth and culture. Florentine born, the father of the Divina Commedia contributed greatly to bringing all classes closer to literature, reshaping its elitist conception. This is why Dante's work is a universal heritage, and will be universally celebrated, with events scheduled throughout Italy.

However, Florence is a candidate to lead the celebrations, with a highly anticipated calendar full of initiatives in the artistic, social, cultural and musical fields. The events will be unveiled on a monthly basis, but already today many activities are taking place or are being organized in the major museums of Florence, as well as in Italy and abroad. Forlì, a symbolic crossroads between Florence and Ravenna, seat of Dante's tomb, will host the great exhibition Dante. The vision of art, the result of the cooperation between the San Domenico Museums and the Uffizi Galleries, which will lend important paintings and sculptures. The Florentine institution will welcome, from March, a monograph on Giuseppe Penone, centered on a work of Dante's inspiration, relating to the passage of Paradise where Dante sees "an upturned tree, with its roots at the top, which takes the wisdom of heaven to bring it to Earth”. Penone also signs the statue Identity, collocated in Piazza della Signoria, on the occasion of the monographic exhibition. The Uffizi will also curate the two exhibitions scheduled in Poppi (Arezzo) and Castagno.

The celebrations in the historic center of Florence continue, in the second half of 2021, with the exhibition From Hell to the Empire - Dante's world between science and poetry coordinated by the Galileo Museum and the Uffizi with the aim of contextualizing Dante's scientific skills in medieval culture. The opera too pays homage to the Poet: the Foundation Teatro del Maggio Fiorentino hosts an integral reading of the Divina Commedia at the Goldoni Theater in twenty appointments and sets up a concert production directed by Riccardo Muti.

The Bargello Museum welcomes two events organized together with the University of Florence: Honorable and Ancient Citizen of Florence, from 23 March to 25 July 2021, and The wonderful vision - Dante and the Comedy in the symbolist imagination, from 23 September 2021 to 9 January 2022. The Società Dantesca Italiana, together with the illustrious Florentine libraries - Mediceo-Laurenziana, Riccardiana and Nazionale - proposes an exhibition dedicated to the relationship between Dante and the libraries of his time.

Finally, the Municipality of Florence announced In the Name of Dante, a program of events organized by the Associazione degli italianisti in collaboration with Società Dantesca, Società Dante Alighieri e and Società italiana viaggiatori. Among the noteworthy initiatives, we recommend the exhibition by the British artist Tom Phillips at Palazzo Strozzi and On the way with Dante, a journey on foot between Florence and Ravenna.
