“Illuminating Dante,” an exhibition celebrating both the seventh centenary of Dante’s death (1265-1321) and Italian-American Heritage and Culture Month in October, is presented by the Special Collections and Italian Program of the department of languages, literatures and cultures of the world at the University of A. From October 5 to 31, the exhibition consists of 22 items arranged in two cases and in exhibition columns on the first floor of the Mullins Library.

It features a recently acquired 1520 copy of the Divine comedy, various illustrated editions of Dante’s masterpiece in Italian and English, works related to or inspired by the Divine comedy with a focus on early modern Italian writers and books that explore the reception of Dante’s masterpiece across cultural contexts, including the African American community. Students in Italian 4123, “Dante: a journey between visions and words”, participated in the organization of the exhibition.

The Consulate General of Italy, in Houston, Texas, is the sponsor of the exhibition. For more information, please visit the exhibition website: illuminatingdante.uark.edu (live October 5).
