VHI Director contributes to Dante 2021 on BBC Radio 4


VHI Director, Vittorio Montemaggi, has contributed to an exciting new BBC radio series: Dante 2021. Each episode of the three part BBC Radio 4 programme, which aired around the 700th anniversary’s of Dante’s death, explores a different part of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy. Dr Montemaggi guides host Katya Adler through the third and final section of the epic poem: Paradiso.

From the BBC website:

“Although Paradiso is often considered the least appealing of Dante’s three regions, Vittorio points out surprising resonances for today, and shares his own personal epiphany, experienced while reading Dante with inmates of a high-security prison, that we each carry within us a spark of Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso.”
