Description Scenes & Extras
 
A powerful introduction to the greatest work of medieval literature by Dante Alighieri. Originally titled Commedia, the comedy is divided into three sections: Inferno, with 34 cantos, Purgatorio and Paradiso each with 33 cantos. This masterpiece was written between 1306-1321 and was completed just before Dante's death.

This unique program draws upon new dramatic filmed sequences, contemporary images and the work of artists inspired by Dante's epic voyage of the imagination. This stirring film also provides the ideal starting point for the study of this major work.

"There is no greater sorrow than to recall happiness in times of misery"
- Dante Alighieri (The Inferno)
