Book selection by Deputy Director and Curator Lisa Melandri

Dante Alighieri’s, The Divine Comedy is lauded as one of the greatest pieces of both Italian and world literature. Divided into three parts (Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso), it paints an allegorical and imaginative vision of the afterlife – a perfect complement to Marco Brambilla’s 3D video art work, Civilization (Megaplex), an epic video collage which scrolls vertically from Hell to Heaven.

The Divine Comedy
Translation by: Mark Musa (Viking Portable Library)
Inferno: 1, 5, 6, 13, 26, 34
Purgatorio: 1, 2, 31
Paradiso: 1, 15, 33
