PLOT : The documentary Dante – la visione dell’arte is about the great Forlì exhibition dedicated to the great Tuscan poet, in the year of the 7th centenary of his death. Miriam Galanti will guide the viewer inside the large exhibition consisting of about three hundred masterpieces created thanks to the synergy between the San Domenico Museums in Forlì and the Uffizi Galleries in Florence. In this exhibition, perhaps for the first time, the intimate relationship between Dante and art is reconstructed, through the works of those artists who, from the thirteenth to the twentieth century, ventured into the great challenge of rendering the visionary power of Dante, his works and in particular the Divine Comedy.Giotto, Reni, Von Stuck, Lotto, Tintoretto: Dante's success among artists is due to the fact that the poet does not tell but shows, he does not simply express feelings, he makes them become gestures. His is a “visible talk”, a figurative story. Hand in hand with the exhibition, the documentary starts from the Last Judgment and leads the viewer to the celestial vision of Paradise. In between is the journey through Hell and Purgatory with the most famous characters of the Comedy such as Paolo and Francesca, Count Ugolino, Beatrice, the numerous portraits of Dante, the grim representations of Lucifer and the luminous ones of the Virgin.
