webinar > The Metamorphosis of Beatrice. Love and Justice from Dante’s

A presentation by prof. Marco Veglia.

How many representations of Beatrice does Dante's poetry convey? If she were divine, she was also cruel prior to the Divine Comedy. It is there, in the “Commedia”, that she changes for the love of Dante, and he does the same for the love of her. Once extraneous to politics, Beatrice becomes, in fact, the eye watching the justice of men on earth.

Prof. Marco Veglia teaches Italian and Medieval Literature at the University of Bologna. An expert on Dante and Boccaccio, he recently curated the latest and most innovative commentary to the Decameron for the Italian publisher Feltrinelli.
