La Luce delle Parole
Vari luoghi del centro storico
Dates: from 27/11/2020 to 31/12/2021

Fifteen lines from the Divine Comedy, six streets of the city centre and all around is Christmas.

From 27 November 2020 to 31 December 2021, the streets of Ravenna dress up with La Luce delle parole, a project of light installations that recall some of the Supreme Poet's most emblematic words, many of which celebrate the city.

On Dante celebrations, this project outlines a bright path through the porticoes and buildings of the city: it is a real homage to the Father of the Italian language and - at the same time - it wants to be a message of hope, wishing that soon we will “see-once more-the stars”  (Inferno XXXIV, 139).

Via Gordini, via Diaz, via Corrado Ricci, via Mazzini, via IV Novembre, and via Cavour: these streets of the city centre turn into literature under the open sky.

If you want to immerse yourself in this poetic atmosphere, you can listen to the original canto from which the shiny hendecasyllables are taken: you just need to scan the QR code you see under the installation to listen to the work directly on your smartphone or tablet.
