From September 25th: “The sound of Dante”

The Italian Cultural Institute of New York will participate in the 21st week of the Italian language in the world from October 18-24, 2021.

The title of this special week is “Dante, the Italian language” and ad-hoc events will be viewable on “Stanze taliane”. On September 25, 2021, “The sound of Dante” – a project carried out by Mariateresa Sartori in collaboration with Fondazione Querini Stampalia – will be available as an exclusive preview on our platform.

This idea is about a “musical” composition based on the melodious material of the Divine Comedy: Dante’s verses will be read out by the repositioning of consonants, a method that switches the listener’s attention from their semantic level into their rhythm and melody. An unreleased musical piece by Paolo Marzocchi will also be broadcast.
