Dante, father of the Italian language

Dante Alighieri, the great writer of the “Divine Comedy”, is one of if not the most famous writers from Florence. Thanks to him, the Italian language was born and became famous as the literary language par excellence all over the world. His works are still studied today, hundreds of years later. In Florence, you will find sites tied to all of the fundamental stages of his life: from his house to his cenotaph (his tomb is located in Ravenna), and all of the places he frequented in life: the church of Santa Croce, the cathedral and the baptistery and, naturally, the House of Dante.
