Italian Language Week celebrations: Dante's Talk at the Art Gallery
Dr Bruno Ferraro's Lecture at the Auckland Art Gallery, Saturday 20 October at 11 am was a big success.
Bruno's talk was organised by the Dante Alighieri Society of Auckland and the Auckland Art Gallery to celebrate the 18th Annual Week of the Italian Language in the World, a series of events that will culminate here in Auckland with the Festival Italiano in Newmarket, on the 28th of October.
Dr Ferraro took us on a journey from Hell to Mt. Eden following Dante’s footsteps. Famous artists and Tchaikovsky’s music illustrated Dante’s spectacular depiction of his age through Hell, a place where we found lovers, historical personages, artists, knights and Popes.
Thanks again to the Art Gallery, and to Kim O'Loughlin in particular, and also to Dr Bruno Ferraro for making this talk possible.
