This Purgatory is part of a larger project called Cantiere Dante. It started in Ravenna with Inferno, which in 2017 involved over a thousand citizens of Ravenna and many people who came from various Italian and foreign cities. 2021, the year of Dante’s seventeenth-century anniversary, will also be the final year of this “ongoing project” that crosses the streets of Italian cities and beyond (Paradise is in fact planned both in Ravenna and in Romania, in Timisoara).
