In 1999, Nuages Gallery in Milan published these three illustrated editions of Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. See Nuages to learn more about the illustrators (Lorenzo Mattotti, Milton Glaser, and Moebius) and the project as a whole.
This how-to book, published in 2010, was written as a guide for managers and entrepreneurs to navigating the business world. Through the sections Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso, Enrico Cerni creates a book-long metaphor using the famous characters and sites from Dante’s Divine Comedy.

“Dishes from Downunder… and we don’t mean Australia” —Dan Ts
“It began as a flicker in the eye of culinary adventurer and graphic designer Dan Taylor when he decided to get serious about a sauce recipe he’d concocted while he was in university. The sauce for chicken wings quickly became a great hit with friends and family. With the dawning knowledge that the recipe was more than just a wing sauce, Dan T’s Inferno Spiced Cayenne Sauce was born.
The name is a saucy play on Dante’s Inferno, the first book of the 13th century poem The Divine Comedy, which describes the poet Dante’s allegoric descent into hell.” —Dant Ts

“Musea’s collaboration with Finnish Colossus Society has been fruitful in these last years, and the newest release is the most ambitious so far: a 4 cd set, with a comprehensive booklet, featuring 34 bands to address the 34 cantos of the “Inferno” part of the legendary 14th century epic poem ‘The Divine Comedy’ by Dante Alighieri (Purgatory and Paradise will be the concept of future releases, in order to complete the trilogy).
With such an amount of bands coming from different grounds within the progressive aesthetics, it is only natural that the conducting line is only maintained by the story and by the usage of vintage instruments (moog, mellotron, etc) which are common to all the guest bands. In part, and besides the fact that this approach secures a wide array of styles and different musical perspectives, it is also true that it makes the album not being as cohesive and focused as the Epic Poem that muses it would deserve. But hey! There are 4hours+ of pure “regressive” symphonic rock to fully enjoy!” –Nuno, Proggnosis
