The “Divine Comedy” by Ezio Anichini

Dante Alighieri had a major influence on the career of his fellow citizen Ezio Anichini (1886-1948).

The Florentine artist – who collaborated with magazines such as “Almanacco italiano Bemporad”, “Il Giornalino della Domenica”, and “Scena illustrata” since the very early 1900s – often worked on portraits of the famous poet, represented scenes from his works, and illustrated postcards to celebrate the 600-year anniversary of Dante’s death, in 1921.
