Matteo Pericoli presented his drawing "I tre regni"

Tuesday, Mar 1, 2016

On April 5 the Italian architect and designer Matteo Pericoli presented at the Princeton Art Museum his drawing I tre regni (The Cosmos of Dante's Divine Comedy), in the framework of the Dante course ITA 303, taught by Simone Marchesi.  The design, which accompanies the newly released Italian edition of Robert Hollander's commentary to Dante's Commedia, offers a painstakingly detailed and imaginative rendering of Dante's architecture of hell, purgatory, and paradise. [The Italian daily newspaper La Stampa covered the Princeton event and the release of the high-school Dante edition to which the design is connected.]
