A journey through songs and readings, evoking the female figures Dante loved and celebrated: the Virgin Mary, or heavenly love; Beatrice, or earthly love, albeit in a sublimated form; Francesca, or damnation redeemed… From Dante’s verses to the melody of Petrarch’s sonnets, evoking the Gothic music repertoire Dante himself must have listened to in Florence and Ravenna. A concert centred on Woman’s beauty and love, bringing together the major literary languages of Dante’s time.
