Dante’s Pizza & Pasta is located in La Piazza Square in Klerksdorp, South Africa.
Fans of the Fiorentia football team “welcomed” back player Dusan Vlahovic to the team with a reference to Dante.
Vlahovic left Fiorentia to play for Juventus in January, but recently returned to Forentia. He was greeted with “a very special banner covering the entire end of the arena that referenced Canto 26, the section of Dante’s Inferno, where his protagonist continues his journey through hell, that is dedicated to frauds,” Football Italia said.
The banner read: “Vlahovic, throughout Hell thy name is spread about!”
“‘Lucca Comics & Games is a unique cross-media event dedicated to pop culture, cosplay, and comics held in a medieval Tuscan town,’ said Emanuele Vietina, Director of Lucca Comics & Games.
“This year Italy is honouring poet and philosopher Dante Alighieri by celebrating the 700th anniversary of his death and Dante’s Divine Comedy sets the tone for the returning festival with this year’s theme being ‘rebehold the stars: light’.
“‘The theme of Light will visually accompany the Festival experience with contemporary Italian illustrator Paolo Barbieri creating the image of Lucca Comics & Games poster (above). In the year of Dante’s celebrations, he creates a link between Lucca Comics & Games to Dante’s journey with Virgil through the darkness of Hell.” [. . .] —SciFiNow, September 24, 2021 (retrieved March 8, 2022)
The festival took place, in-person, from October 29 – November 1, 2021.
“Dante learns a great many things about the metaphysical world, but this blog post is mostly concerned with the temperature of the 9th circle of hell. For those who haven’t read it, this circle is not a fire pit with little devils poking bare-bummed sinners with pitch forks. It’s frozen solid, and at the very epicenter, Satan is frozen mid-waist, eternally munching on Brutus, Cassius, and Judas in his three mouths. It’s pretty gruesome but not unlike what’s going on in San Francisco this winter.” [. . .] —Snotting Black, January 15, 2013
