Today we are in Gradara and we want to learn more about the tragic story of Paolo and Francesca immortalized by Dante in the Divine Comedy

Remember, reader, if you have ever been Into the mountains when the clouds close in, So that you saw as blindly as a mole. How when at last the dense and humid vapors, Begin to blow away, the circle of the sun Pierces through the mists with feebleness, Then your imagination will be quick, To come to see how I first saw the sun, Once more right at the moment of its setting.

The Gradara Castle, medieval fortress situated at 142 metres above sea level, dates back to the period between 11th and 15th centuries. Legend has it that the castle was the scene of the famous and tragic love story of Paolo and Francesca, caught in each other’s arms and killed by Gianciotto, Francesca’s husband. It was Dante, however, who intervened with his Divine Comedy, making the castle the locale for the tale of Paolo and Francesca and thus turning the castle forever into a symbol of love. Tchaikovsky presents a symphonic interpretation of the tragic tale of Francesca in his symphonic poem Francesca da Rimini: Symphonic Fantasy after Dante, Op. 32 #gradara #dante #tchaikovski #francesca #paolo #italia #bellaitalia #divinecomedy #gradaracastle 🇮🇹🏰♥️
