25 Sep Dante’s Tomb
Dante Alighieri, the well-known poet from the Middle Ages, is buried in Ravenna, Italy. Pictured above is his tomb, which wasn’t built until the late 1700’s. Our tour guide told us that the adjacent monastery had housed his remains carefully in a false wall to keep them safe. Dante, who wrote The Divine Comedy, is consider “The Supreme Poet” or “Il Sommo Poeta” in Italy.
“A great flame follows a little spark.” — Dante Alighieri
