Casa Di Dante - Dante's House Tips (13)

Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) was born in Florence and belonged to a patrician family that is strongly supported Ghibellines. His unwavering commitment to Ghibellines, who were against the Pope, was crucial to determine his whole life.

And Dante's Church

Right next to Dante's house you can find a small church that it's a true gem, almost hidden to the unaware tourist, but worth a visit, if for nothing else just because it was attended by the great poet.

Dantesque Furnishings

Dante reportedly was born in a small house still extant on Via Santa Margherita. One of the beauties about Florence is that, without some special indication of its being the Dante house, the building would scarcely call attention from the other structures in the lane.

Poetry in the street

I didn't go into Dante's house because of scepticism about famous houses. The Mozart house in Vienna was filled with shrieking school children and contained little to nothing of interest. Dante's house is interesting to see on the outside, however, and the visitor will be awarded with a Dantesque verse about his hometown. My scepticism was duly rewarded - this is a 20th century structure built on the site of the 12th century house in which Dante lived. Yes, this is a faux monument.

He lived in different cities in Italy and died in Ravena (1321).

He could not ever go back to his city.

He is the author of the ‘Divina Comedia’, and he is one of the fathers of the Italian modern language.

Under repairs

When I was there it was being repaired. His house was located behind my house (I lived in Via Del Corso) so I walked past it couple of times and went inside the church.

It looked pretty from outside so I recommand you to see it and let me know how it is from the inside!

Dante's house - La casa di Dante

As I learned, the place known as the house of Dante Alighieri, the great medieval florentine writer, is actually a replica of the actual house that existed in the same place, where he was born and raised. Anyway, an important must-see, with a small museum dedicated to him.

Casa di Dante

Why, it's a place where Dante Alighieri lived, isn't that sufficiently unique? I'm talking 'The Divine Comedy' here, containing that rollicking raucus romp, 'Inferno', plus those other two which most people (including me) haven't bothered to read. I had no idea Dante had lived in Florence until I came upon this bust sitting on the wall outside his house. I was compelled to enter, compelled I tell you!! Ok, so maybe it's not that great, but I'm a fan. Perhaps I'll move this to 'Off the Beaten Path.'
