The Italian Cultural Institute in Buenos Aires is organising another event dedicated to Dante. Claudia Fernandez, professor of Italian language at the University of Buenos Aires and of Medieval Italian Literature at the Instituto Superior del Profesorado Joaquin V. Gonzalez, will deliver a ‘Lectura Dantis’ on the two Thursdays left in the month of August. On Thursday, 17 August, she will read the Canto XVI of the Purgatory, on the encounter between the Wrathful and Marco Lombardo and on the crisis of moral values and of free will, while on Thursday, 24 August, she will comment Canto XVII, containing visions of wrath being punished, the ordering of the Purgatory, of sins and of love. The initiative was organised by the Jockey Club in Argentina.
