On the occasion of the celebrations for the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri's death, whose remains are jealously guarded by Ravenna, the city starts the project "L'ora che volge il disìo" - Perpetual reading of the Divine Comedy.

Every day and forever – people will read a different Canto of the Comedy in front of Dante's Tomb: in this way, the city will celebrate Dante's masterpiece, giving anyone who would like to try the opportunity to read aloud one of the most illustrious pieces of Italian culture and history.

The event is free and open to anyone.
