No particular text is necessary. All the different notes and translations make the discussion more interesting. Everyone, of all ages and backgrounds, is welcome. Members of the academic, cultural and publishing communities and native speakers are particularly welcome. All of the discussions in the Dante reading/discussion group is 100% in Italian.
