Purgatory is the place that divides Heaven and Hell, a frontier to God suspended in time as one approaches salvation. For this reason, Purgatory is the expectation of happiness, the place that Dante goes through in the company of Virgil in search of freedom from sin and suffering, but above all, from the fear of death.

Dante is the poet who invented Italy. He didn't just give us a language, he gave us above all an idea of ourselves and of our country: "Il Bel Paese". A land united by culture and beauty, destined for a universal role: because it collects the legacy of the Roman Empire and the classical world, and is the cradle of Christianity and humanism. Italy is not born of a war or diplomacy, it is born from Dante's verses… (‘A riveder le stelle”).

Aldo Cazzullo is a journalist and writer. He his a special correspondent and columnist at Il Corriere della Sera. His books on Italy, published by Mondadori, have sold more than a million copies. “A riveder le stelle”, Dante il poeta che inventò l’Italia, sold 250,000 copies.

Organized under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic by the Dante Alighieri Society of Michigan With the support of the Italian American Club of Livonia Charitable Foundation. Under the Auspices of the Consulate of Italy in Detroit.
