18.09.2021 17:30 - 19:00

The gardens of the Castle of Porciano will host appointments dedicated to the presentation of books as part of the "Dante Festival 700" promoted by the Municipality of Pratovecchio-Stia.

Upcoming dates:

– September 3, 2021, “Arezzo and the Aretines in the Divine Comedy” by Stefano Pasquini, a lawyer from Arezzo who is passionate about philosophy and literature. The book talks about seven characters from Arezzo, of which not everyone knows, who were included in the Divine Comedy by Dante.

– September 18, 2021, “I personaggi della Divina Commedia” by Carlo Ossola, Italian philologist and critic. Between literary narrative and historical-philosophical incursions, Carlo Ossola sets up a fascinating journey through thirty unpublished portraits of the poet’s contemporaries, both Italian and foreign, and the classical and biblical characters he meets, following their trajectory from the descent into Hell to Purgatory, to the mystery of Paradise.

Start presentations at 17.30 with free admission.
