SU Celebrates 700 Years of Dante’s Legacy

Members of the SU community are creating works of art, poetry, music and other projects inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy on the 700th anniversary of the poet’s death. These works will be featured in an exhibition in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics (340 H.B. Crouse) during the week of May 3-14, and will be considered for inclusion on the Dante at SU website.

Vote for your favorite piece here.

At the virtual Dante Fair on May 7 at 1pm, winners of the Art Contest will be announced, recitations of the Comedy will be performed in several languages, and students will present their work. To register for the Dante Fair and receive the Zoom link to join the Fair, please click here.
