Dante Alighieri

In memory of the 750th anniversary of the birth of Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) also philatelic events were organised. The Circolo Filatelico e Numismatico “Dante Alighieri” (Ravenna, Italy) and the CIFT (Italian Association of Thematic Philately) edited a catalogue of all the philatelic material that exists of Dante Alighieri. So they published not only a catalogue of the stamps, but also special obliterations, meters, postal stationeries and others.

Already more than 5 years ago CIFT started a huge project on the Divina Commedia of Dante – Progetto Dante. This enormous work was discussed for years on the forum of the CIFT (in Italian). This resulted in three volumes and DVD on one of the major works of world literature (Inferno / Purgatorio / Paradiso).
