Dear friends of the Dante Alighieri Society, we are pleased to invite you to the end of summer potluck event by the Woodside Shelter on Belle Isle in Detroit on Sep 10 at 11 am. Chat with old friends, enjoy Italian food, and take a picture with the old Dante to compare it with the fully restored statue next year The event will take place rain or shine. We recommend you reserve your spot soon. Register here.

The event is free to the public. Donations are greatly appreciated. At Dante Michigan, we believe Dante must be remembered past this year and for -at least- the next 700 years. Unfortunately, his statue on Belle Isle is in poor condition. Considering this, Dante Michigan has started work towards a restoration project to bring the statue to its past glory and carry the memory of the Sommo Poeta to future generations.
