The University of Verona, in the year of the celebrations for the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death
proposes an international conference that aims to investigate both the historical and cultural context
 of Dante’s time – with particular reference to medieval chronicles, the history of libraries and the 
history of art – and the reception of the opera, with particular reference to theatre and cinema.

A section will be dedicated to the history of studies and the development of research methodologies.

The Scientific Committee of this conference is composed of Zygmunt G. Baranski, Odinary Professor at the Universities of Cambridge and Notre Dame; Teodolinda Barolini, Academician and Professor of Italian Studies at Columbia University; Simona Brambilla, Director of the Centre for Italian Studies at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart and Scientific Coordinator of the International Summer School in Dante Studies; Theodore J. Cachey Jr., Professor of Italian Language at the University of Notre Dame; Stefano Carrai,
Philologist, Literary Critic, Poet and Ordinary Professor of Italian Literature at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa; Giuseppe Frasso, Founding Member of the Ambrosian Academy of Italian Studies and Professor Emeritus of the University of Pisa; Paolo Pellegrini, Professor of Philology of Italian Literature at the University of Verona and Andrea A. Robiglio, Professor of Dante and Medieval 
Philosophy at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.
