Monday: the day dedicated to the great poet Dante Alighieri


On March 25 of each year, Dantedì is celebrated, the day dedicated to the great poet Dante Alighieri. The Danteists recognize on this day the beginning of Dante's journey into the afterlife told in the Comedy. Today, all over the world, there are many celebrations to remember and honor the Poet and Italy is in the front row: at 19.10 at the Quirinale there will be the homage of Roberto Benigni live on Rainews24 and This anniversary was established by the Council of Ministers, on the proposal of the Minister of Culture, Dario Franceschini just last year, in 2020. This year, however, the celebrations for Monday take on an even greater symbolic value, precisely because there we find ourselves living in Dante's anus par excellence, seven hundred years after the Poet's death in 1321.

According to the statements of the Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini, “Dante is the very idea of ​​Italy“. This reflection takes place in the light of what Dante did for the birth of the Italian language, even from the linguistic treatises ante litteram, we are obviously talking about the De Vulgari Eloquentia, and not only about the Commedia, which obviously has the distinction of being the first work poetics to have been written in "Italian", or late 1300s Latin, if you prefer.

"The Dantedì allows us to revive every year the memory of the Poet, whose memory is vital for the very survival of our national identity", said Professor Carlo Ossola, awarded the prestigious task of coordinating the celebrations for Dante's year and hopes that by the end of the school year the Ministry of Education will be able to give each student a copy of the Divine Comedy. Even the President of the Republic Mattarella, celebrates Dante Alighieri by supporting the greatness of the contents of his universal and timeless poetry, which aims to show the vices and virtues of the human being, true yesterday and true today, also because: it attracts, fascinates us, still questions us today because it speaks to us about us. Of the deepest essence of man, made up of weaknesses, falls, nobility and generosity ".

The celebrations for Dante's year obviously do not end today and will continue for the next few months. In this regard, we invite you to visit the website of the Ministry of Culture on the page dedicated to Dante Alighieri at this link.
