500 Lire silver coin dedicated to the 7th centenary of the birth of Dante Alighieri, Brilliant Uncirculated.
This coin is not sold in original packaging.
Dante Alighieri was an Italian poet, writer and politician.
He is considered the father of the Italian language; his fame is eminently due to the authorship of the Comediaa, which became famous as the Divine Comedy and is universally considered the greatest work written in Italian and one of the greatest masterpieces of world literature.
An expression of medieval culture, filtered through the lyric of the Dolce stil novo, the Comedy is also an allegorical vehicle of human salvation, which is concretized in touching the dramas of the damned, purgatory punishments and celestial glories, allowing Dante to offer the reader one split of morals and ethics.
