Dante and Bodoni

Dante and Bodoni – the Divina Commedia

In the anniversary of 700 years from Dante’s death, two masterpieces in one.
Dante and Bodoni are together in a timeless work that is still charming for us: a prestigious publishing initiative with which Parma, Italian Capital of Culture 2020/2021, celebrates the Dante’s anniversary.

The volume, a typographic monument that reappears after two centuries, unifies the three original volumes of the Bodoni’s edition of the 1796 preserved in the Biblioteca Palatina of Parma. The volume is ideally dedicated to Franco Maria Ricci.

Project and introduction by Pino Agnetti, edition Gazzetta di Parma, limited edition of 999 pieces numerated by hand, printed by Grafiche Step from Parma on paper Miliani di Fabriano – Fedrigoni Group, with the patronage of the Fondazione Museo Bodoniano.
