“The intellectual community created by Digital Dante extends beyond Columbia to embrace colleagues from other institutions and countries. It is a thrilling and intellectually invigorating experience to have the opportunity to create this beautiful platform for dialogue about one of the world’s great global authors and to know that, through the digital realm, our material is reaching a global audience.”

Barolini discusses the history and the impact of Digital Dante, a multimedia platform for Dante research, on the Columbia University Libraries blog.
