Dante was one of the greatest Italian poets and considered around the world, not only as a poet, but also as an important philosopher with fascinating ideas and writings.
Dante, a resident of Florence, lived in Verona for a while after being exiled from his town. During his stay here, he even dedicated some of his works to the Scaligeri family, who were the rulers of the city at that time and showed hospitality to him, gave him considerable freedom of creativity and showed great tolerance for him.
First and foremost, Dante was an Italian poet who wrote the famous poem "La Divina Commedia" at the beginning of the 14th century. This poetic poem is considered one of the greatest literary works of the late Middle Ages. Many in Italy see it as a canonical work that formed the basis of modern Italian language.
In the world and in literature as a whole, "Divine Comedy" is considered to be a primary cultural asset. In his fascinating preoccupation with the descent to question, in hell and paradise, Dante gave a glimpse into both the fears and ideas of medieval intellectuals.
In the last half-millennium, this work has received countless references, quotations and gestures in the history of Western culture.
