"ma per trattar del ben ch'i vi trovai"
The Dante Society London promotes Italian culture, language and creativity in London ranging between the forms of art and traditions that made the Bel Paese famous in the world: literature, poetry, music, theatre and tourism. Santy Masciarò, the founder, passionate about Dante Alighieri's poetry, launched this non-profit organisation in 2020. Inspired by the public performances of Roberto Benigni on the canti of the Divine Comedy, Santy decides to study all the works of the great Poet. The beautyful sound of these verses convinces him to memorise about 1,500 lines by heart during a long and passionate study. It can therefore be said that the sound of Dante's verses gave rise to the Dante Society London.....exactly 700 years after the Poet's death.
