Dante's legacy in late Trecento Italy
Dante’s imagery left a deep imprint in his Florentine fellows. Stunned by his work, writers and poet-musicians admired, imitated, and commented upon his Stilnovo poetry and above all on his cosmological masterpiece, Divina Commedia. Mirrors, angels, ghosts predicting the future, Beatrice's eyes, the silence in the sky of Saturn, thunder, sorrow, ecstasy, human and divine Love: Paradiso explores Dante’s fingerprints in the works of Francesco Landini, Lorenzo Masini, Paolo da Firenze and their contemporaries. Three to four singers, four instrumentalists.
