Within the most famous work of Dante Alighieri there are
many references to the Casentino Valley. Moreover, the Supreme Poet, who fought
in Campaldino and stayed at the Castle of Poppi – where he wrote some pages of
the Comedy – knew this area very well.
The illustrated volume, catalog of the exhibition set up in Poppi (Arezzo) from
16 July to 30 November 2021, examines the relationship between Dante and the
Casentino area, in an excursus between literature and art history accompanied
by a fascinating iconography.
