Florence, July 20 to August 6, 2012 – Another 12 Canti from Dante’s Inferno in Piazza Santa Croce, Florence
From July 20 to August 6, Piazza Santa Croce in Florence welcomes Roberto Benigni’s TuttoDante (Everything Dante). The actor will again recite from the Inferno over the period of 12 evenings, this time from Canti XI al XXII.
The great success of past editions have reaffirmed the event’s singularity, its uniqueness in history and entertainment – an engaging display in which satire and comedy alternate in recounting topics inspired by current events in part one, and a dramatic narration of Dante’s verses in part two.
Florence hosted this by-now traditional performance for the first time in 2006, with more than 5,000 people in attendance each of the 13 evenings.
Benigni has replicated TuttoDante for Dante enthusiasts on two continents, in London, Paris, Zurich, Brussels, Geneva, Frankfurt, Madrid, Athens and several other European cities, in addition to New York, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Montreal, Toronto, and Quebec City.
