HomeDante in the Risorgimento

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 by Anastasia Giardinelli

Summary

In anticipation of the 700° anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s death (September 2021), the journal “Il Risorgimento” intends to dedicate a monographic issue to the political, literary, historic, artistic and symbolic use of the poet during the period of National Unification. The cultural centrality of Dante in the first half of the Nineteenth century, not only in Italy, has been the subject of numerous specific research. “Il Risorgimento” is looking for new and original works, based on unknown or under-utilized sources. This is meant to widen interpretations, putting aside – if possible – those sources which solely position themselves through the lens of the Italian “genius”. The journal is not looking for a vain reproduction of a “canon”. Instead, the focus is on the documented presence of Dante in environments still unexplored in the civil and private life of Italians in the years of the struggle for Independence.
