The "Vita Nova"by Dante Alighieri. A book that should be read by those who are in the process for a trip to Florence


Io spero di dicer di lei quello che mai non fue detto d'alcuna
Written by Fabrizio Ulivieri

The "Vita Nova" by Dante Alighieri is definitely an outdated book for the times we live in.
Oudated mainly for one reason: it speaks of  Amore, Love, (with capital letter).
An idealization and interiorization of Love in order to transcend the factual and intrinsic love for a woman (Beatrice) and become the Motor itself of Dante's poetry.
A unique book in its structure: the story of Dante’s love for Beatrice until the Beatrice’s death (just perceived in a dreamlike vision). The painful history of Dante's dolor for this unhappy love that in the end becomes the Spirit itself of Dante's poetry. Prose sonnets and canzoni are mixed so as to tell us about a world that unfortunately is centuries away from our raw modernity: a world of Beauty and Love.

A book that should be read by those who are in the process for a trip to Florence. A book to be read before coming to this city, a book that will enable people to fully appreciate the scenery, the walls, the streets and the atmosphere that still breathe that Love’s atmosphere.
