Multilingual Reading Series

Toronto Salutes Dante

Dante's Inferno as you've never heard it.

Dante, known as the father of the Italian language, was born in Florence in 1265 and died in Ravenna in 1321.

His epic poem, The Divine Comedy, is considered an iconic masterpiece of medieval literature that has inspired poets and writers worldwide through the centuries.

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto kicks off its collaboration with the network of fellow Institutes in the USA with “Toronto Salutes Dante”, as part of the DANTE 700 series of events marking the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s passing.

Presented in collaboration with the University of Toronto Department of Italian Studies and the E. Goggio Chair in Italian Studies, Toronto Salutes Dante features more than thirty Canada-based guests who read Dante’s Inferno in various languages, several for the first time. In addition to ten different Italian dialects, there are represented American Sign Language, Anishinaabemowin, Arabic, Bulgarian, English, Farsi, French, German, Latin, Mandarin, Portuguese, Québécois, Russian, Sanskrit, Slovak, Spanish, Stoney Nakoda, Swedish, Thai, and Ukrainian. In 15-minute clips, well-known personalities of the Canadian public and cultural life, professors, and students at the University of Toronto, and members of the Italo-Canadian community share their voices and fresh memories of the most important Italian author in world literature.

Listen to Dante’s Inferno as you have never heard before it on the YouTube channel of the Department of Italian Studies at the University of Toronto Youtube channel from March 25th to June 2021.

Webinar

Biography and Self-telling in Dante

Writing a biography of Dante is a challenge many have faced. While the archives are mostly silent, his work contains many personal passages that can be easily mistaken for an autobiography. Traditional approaches evaluate these various fragments, exclude those considered less reliable, combine the remaining in a “likely” series of events. The book "Vite nuove. Biografia e autobiografia di Dante", co-written by Elisa Brilli and Giuliano Milani, attempts a different approach. In this talk, Prof. Elisa Brilli will illustrate such endeavour, its specificities, some of their main findings, and explore the question not of how to use Dante’s statements to reconstruct his life but of how much biographical research on Dante and, more in general, our vision of literary authors, owes to his self-telling.

Presented by the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Toronto in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, & Washington D.C.
