About the Author

Luca Fiorentini is Research Assistant at the University of Rome 'La Sapienza', Italy.


"In a hundred or so pages, Fiorentini develops a close comparison with well-known texts, to which, however, he turns with a new question and the resolute will to find an answer." - Lucio Biasiori, Alias Domenica-il manifesto "In a short and engaging book, Luca Fiorentini rewrites the complex debate about Dante's Commedia promoted by its very first readers." - Giuliano Milani, Internazionale"Fiorentini's essay overcomes what the author himself promises in the introduction of the book, providing the readers with a survey in which the didactic aims are combined with the will of elaborating reflections addressed also to scholars in Italian Studies." - Sara Ferrilli, Linguistica e Letteratura
