Project Description

The Dante Sculpture Gardens

To commemorate the 700 year anniversary of Dante in 2021, Timothy Schmalz is creating a sculpture of each of the 99 cantos in the Divine Comedy. Included in the project is a life-size sculpture of Dante in exile.

Each sculpture highlights one of the most interesting scenes from the canto, creating a visual read of the epic poem. When complete the work will create a large sculpture garden that will walk people through what is widely considered the greatest work in the Italian language.
