L'ora che volge il disìo

On the occasion of the celebrations for the 700th death anniversary of Dante Alighieri, the project L’ORA CHE VOLGE IL DISÌO – Perpetual reading of the Divine Comedy will take place.

The city of Ravenna jealously guards the remains of the Supreme Poet, which are a badge of honour. From September 2020, every day and forever, the participants will read aloud a different Canto of the Comedy in front of Dante’s Tomb.

In this way, the city will celebrate Dante’s masterpiece. Everyone will have the opportunity to read aloud one of the most illustrious pieces of Italian culture and history.


The event “L’ora che volge il disìo” is free and open to anyone.
If you want to participate, please check on the calendar the available dates.
