I am pleased to announce the launch of the website www.mappingdante.com, where you can find the first interactive map of the places mentioned in Dante’s Commedia. It is the result of a project funded by the Price Lab for Digital Humanities at the University of Pennsylvania.
A set of layers allows users to explore the map according to different parameters, with pop-up cards describing each mention of a place and quoting Dante’s text.
This is a beta version: further materials and analyses will be added later.
I hope you will enjoy this new site and find it useful for studying the geographical imagination of the Commedia. If you have any questions or comments please use the contact form on the website.
