Italian Lecture Series Dante's Rome: Eternal City Or Infernal City? says
Join us for a fiery discussion of the great Florentine poet Dante Alighieri's Rome, a city that inspired the design of Hell in his three-part spiritual epic The Divine Comedy. Dr. John Sebastian of Loyola University will explore several critical descriptions of the Eternal City in the writings of Dante and his contemporaries, including Saint Francis of Assisi, Giovanni Boccaccio, Jacopone da Todi, and Catherine of Siena, who wanted to reform the city and restore it to its glory as the seat of medieval Christendom.

The American Italian Cultural Center offers a bi-monthly lecture series exploring a variety of Italian cultural and historical topics. The lectures are free for AICC members and students with a valid university or high school ID, and a suggested donation of $10 for non-members.
