“A new, romantic place where you can read a good book”: that was the comment of the mayor of Aielli, Enzo di Natale, when he inaugurated the masonry work dedicated to Dante Alighieri and his “Divine Comedy” in front of Dario Franceschini, Minister of Culture.
Just a few steps away from the famous Star Tower, tourists will be able to read the Divide Comedy in its entirety while they wander around. The piece has been realized with silkscreened aluminum along the walls flanking Porta Montanara, recently repaved.
A restyling process that the local administration wanted to infuse with culture: beside restoring the abandoned area, they decided to offer something unique to all the tourists that come to Aielli.
So, 700 years after the death of Dante Alighieri, Aielli decided to homage him with a long hall lit by the sun during the day, and by a display of lights during the night. Walking along these walls, you will slowly discover the many, beautiful verses of the Divide Comedy, and have the chance to admire this new work of art that enriches the open-air library of Aielli.
