Description

** Livestream class. Click "Attend Event" to purchase a ticket. Registration includes a handout with details on the many anniversary events being streamed from Ravenna and all over Italy and the world throughout 2021.** Escape to Italy and dive into the history and riches of Ravenna, as Italian food and culture expert Francine Segan takes you on a captivating virtual journey marking the 700th anniversary of the death of Italy’s greatest poet, Dante Alighieri. You’ll explore this UNESCO World Heritage City — home of Dante’s final resting place — as Segan leads you through its sights, art, music, and of course its food and wine. With Segan as your virtual tour guide, you’ll discover Ravenna through Dante’s world — the poet’s tomb and the Quadrarco of Baccioforte, where his bones were hidden for safe-keeping during World War II — and the magnificent 5th Century mosaics, churches and other sites that were part of Dante’s post-Florence life in the city. Segan couples fascinating history with a discussion of the many Dante anniversary celebrations taking place in Ravenna this year — you’ll even get a look at La Luce delle Parole, the magical light installation running through the city center featuring illuminated verses from the Divine Comedy.
