CITTADELLA AND VENETO IN DANTE’S COMEDY

Cittadella, Chiesa del Torresino
30.05 – 23.08 / 2020

On the occasion of the 800th anniversary of foundation of Cittadella (1220), the Associations CRUT, ART.AP, Steiner Waldorf Aurora School of Cittadella, Banca del Tempo del Cittadellese, Rotary Club Cittadella Alta Padovana and PassaParola Edizioni in collaboration with IAT and libreria Vettori present the exhibition route “Cittadella and Veneto in Dante’s Comedy”.

The exhibition, edited by Matteo Biscella and Stefania Carlesso, with the participation of Alessandro Anderloni, through the combination of elements of HISTORY, LITERATURE and THEATRE, has the purpose to excite and involve the visitor by introducing six Venetian characters mentioned in the Divine Comedy.

Hell: Ezzelino III Da Romano, Jacopo da S. Andrea, Reginaldo Scrovegni
Purgatory: Gherardo Da Camino, Gherardo da S. Zeno
Paradise: Cunizza da Romano

The characters, told from the point of view of Dante and from that of historical reconstruction, allow to identify some central issues of the Comedy.
Dante’s interest towards human passions and their eternal relevance makes him a precious landmark for today’s man, in constant search for answers to the great questions of life.
In this audioguided exhibition route, the narration merges with the performance of Dante’s verses and with music, by combining history, literature and theatre together.

Dante’s exhibition route with theatrical narrative for students of secondary school and high school

An approach to Comedy through a workshop, dynamic and experiential teaching edited by Stefania Carlesso and Thierry Parmentier.
Thanks to theatrical narrative and experiential theatre, the six characters examined come alive and interact with the visitor, by involving him in an exciting journey, from Hell to Paradise, towards the discovery of the universal values of the Divine Comedy.

This is an exhibition not only to visit during the opening hours, but also and mainly to be experienced firsthand thanks to the several theatrical replicas provided by the rich programming.
Two public conferences are the corollary of an exhibition set up with the aim of exciting and intriguing the visitor, by making the Divine Comedy a work available to everyone.
