An evening on Dante was organized by The Center For Italian Studies on November 20, 2009. A gallery of pictures for this special event can be seen here by clicking on the images.  It may take a few minutes to load all the pictures once you click on the first one.
Inferno (1911), directed by Francesco Bertolini, Giuseppe de Liguoro and Adolfo Padovan,  is a film based on Dante Alighieri's literary masterpiece - his poetic narrative of a journey into Hell.  Inferno is the first feature-length film made in Italy and has been recently re-discovered and restored. It was not only an astonishing achievement in its day, but still holds an avant-garde art film appeal today. This is a silent film with English intertitles, shown for this event with an orchestral soundtrack and with recitative passages from Dante's Inferno.  
Introductory remarks and a discussion following the film.
