Ravenna has been the last refuge of the Supreme Poet, father of the Italian language. The city hosts his mortal remains and over the years has always dedicated the month of September to the memory of Dante.
Silent Play for Dante is an immersive guided tour that, thanks to technology and a skillful script, leads the participants to discover how was Ravenna in the 14th century, meeting characters, places and triplets linked to the memory of the Poet: the Basilica of San Francesco, the Classense Library, the Zone of Silence, the TAMO Museum and the Hanging Gardens of the Province.
The Silent Play technology allows participants a highly suggestive experience, to discover some aspects of Dante’s life in Ravenna and immerse themselves in his Comedy, that drew inspiration from the city and its symbolic places: the screenplay by La Piccionaia Centro di Produzione Teatrale, offers not only a simple guided tour, but a poetic and engaging theatrical experience.
Silent Play for Dante is a project of the Municipality of Ravenna, Department of Tourism, to celebrate the 700th anniversary of Dante's death.
