Throughout 2021 there are expected to be events, shows and exhibits that commemorate the 700th anniversary of the year of Dante’s death.  Already, since 2019, “Dantedi'” has been celebrated on March 25th and again this year many programs are planned for this date.  During his life (1265-1321) Dante travelled to and lived in various Italian towns and cities, starting with his birthplace, Florence, and including Verona, Rome, Pisa, Forli’ and Ravenna. There will be commemorative events connected to Dante in these cities and throughout Italy.   Many of these will be online.  The Uffizi Galleries in Florence is currently hosting  a virtual exhibition in high definition of rarely seen illustrations by Federico Zuccari of the Divine Comedy.  This is the first time that a broad public is able to see the drawings (made between 1586 and 1588)  in their entirety and in such detail.  It’s a treat for art lovers and Dante fans!
