In 2021, CamerAnebbia created a 3-D interactive, immersive storybook using images from a manuscript edition of the Divine Comedy held in the British Library. Visit the project’s website or learn more on Vimeo.
“As a part of the celebrations of the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), this exhibition will present two drawings on parchment by Sandro Botticelli referring to the Divine Comedy’s Inferno, alongside two manuscripts by Jacopo della Lana and Boccaccio, courtesy of the Vatican Library.
“The exhibition will also feature a copy of Dante’s manuscript which once belonged to Frei Manuel do Cenáculo, currently property of the Portuguese National Library, works from the Calouste Gulbenkian’s collection and works by Rui Chafes which refer to Dante’s Inferno.” —Visit Lisboa
The 2021 exhibition was hosted by the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon. See their website here.
“Take a peek inside! In a bustling studio in Brooklyn, New York, contemporary artist George Cochrane is immersed in a monumental challenge: to exquisitely letter and illustrate every page of Dante’s Divine Comedy, completely by hand – INCREDIBLE!
“George’s obsession with Dante is apparent through his achievement of painting hundreds of portraits of the poet over the years. But his dream has always been a simple one: to and more attractive to younger generations.
“George recognized that the best medium to achieve his dream was a combination of the ancient illuminated manuscript and the modern graphic novel.
“This combination will equally delight Dante enthusiasts and first-time readers of the Divine Comedy.” —Facsimile Finder, 2021
The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston offers a number of Dante-related gifts in their online store, commemorating the museum’s manuscript editions of the poet’s works. See, for example, the Dante journal and the magnet bookmark set, both based on reproductions of one of the most beautiful manuscripts in the Gardner collection. The gifts also include a Dante ornament, pictured below.
