“Lettering originale disegnato a mano dei gironi danteschi, stampato su morbidissimo cotone organico.” –-SanCrò Firenze
“With its ultra-chic, retro spirit, Dante makes a bold statement in any space. Taking a cue from Mid-Century Modern pieces, this elegantly angular silhouette evokes an almost architectural feel with simple yet sophisticated details such as its solid wood base and tapered legs. The base is accentuated by antique brass nailheads. With generous proportions, this distinctive collection delivers a smart, stylish look while ensuring exceptional comfort and support.” —Arhaus
“Our 22 karat gold and ruby Elixir of Love ring can hold your tiniest possessions. The griffin was a legendary creature with the body of lion and the head and wings of an eagle. The combination indicates both intelligence and strength. The griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature, renowned for guarding treasures and other priceless possessions. Our griffin is carrying a Maltese cross which is considered a symbol of protection and a badge of honor representing loyalty, generosity, bravery, and helpfulness towards others. In Dante’s Divine Comedy Beatrice takes off into the Heavens to begin Dante’s journey through paradise on a flying Griffin that moves as fast as lightning.” —Donna Distefano
“1. Limbo = Facebook/Twitter/Gmail
“This is where internet hell frequently starts. In Dante’s hell, this is the circle for people who did not accept Christ, but did not sin either. They are the ‘guiltless’ damned, doomed to live in a subpar version of heaven in the first circle. This is where most people fall.
“In the circles of internet hell, the innocents are often just in the triumvirate of Facebook, Twitter and Gmail. If you frequent just these three sites, you are a normal person who has not sinned. You are a guiltless damned in the internet world. You need not go beyond into the further circles of hell.” [. . .] –Gaby Dunn, Thought Catalog, October 23, 2012

“Paolo looks handsome and energetic in a green knitted jumper, with his named embroidered across the front. Francesca looks ‘bella’ in her red knitted jumper, and is delighted that her name is clearly embroidered on the front. Both bears are a wonderful support in the classroom. They bring a real Italian flavour and excitement into school and really adore being with the children.” —Golden Daffodils
