Ravenna Festival calls for young artists to present projects inspired by Dante Alighieri

13 January 2016

In 2016 Ravenna Festival renews its commitment to the celebration and promotion of the relationship between the City of Ravenna and Dante Alighieri, with an important project set in the Ancient Franciscan Cloisters in the "zone of silence", the historical and ideal setting of Dante Alighieri's years in Ravenna, including the Tomb of Dante. Ravenna Festival calls for young artists to present projects inspired by Dante Alighieri. The international competition under the title “Young Artists for Dante” is open until 28 February.

After the 2015 edition "L'amor che move il sole e l'altre stelle", enriched by shows and concerts inspired by the Sommo Poeta, Ravenna Festival turns its relationship with Dante into daily events - every morning at 11:00, from 13 May to 12 July in the Franciscan Cloisters.

In order to organise this series of shows that will turn the "zone of silence" into the very heart of Ravenna and Ravenna Festival, an international contest has been created to encourage and welcome projects aimed at the promotion of the cultural heritage connected to Dante Alighieri and the identity of Ravenna as "city of Dante".

Deadline: 28 February
