Dante, the Supreme Poet

Bronze sculpture made with lost wax casting.
Sant’Elena Church, Verona

Dante, the Supreme Poet

The chromatic values of the statue reflect a pictorial dimension, of explicit likelihood, an uncommon method in traditional sculpture. Even the decision to eliminate the typical pedestal and therefore placing the sculpture directly on the ground, adds weight to the figure of Dante, the solidity of a real encounter: Dante, the Supreme Poet, current man among us, and bearer of a message that has not lost its meaning after 700 years.

The statue of Dante is the manifestation of our admiration of the Supreme Poet and his work, being a universal prophet and an educator to mankind and should be an invitation to read or reread his masterpiece with renewed enthusiasm, fueling the hope that we always need.
