After almost seven centuries, Dante persists and even seems to haunt the present. He has been used, rewritten, and metamorphosed through manifold media and cultural productions. This conference will investigate what so many authors, artists and thinkers from such different artistic, political, geographical, and cultural backgrounds have found in Dante in the 20th and 21st centuries.
