Rossend Arqués, Laura Pasquini, Silvia Maddalo (dir.), “The Smiling Walls. Dante and the Visual Arts”, Turnhout, Brepols, 2024

This book addresses the artistic reception of Dante’s Divine Comedy in mural painting from the Trecento to the Cinquecento, created by some of the greatest fresco painters of this period, and presented here for the first time in its articulated and composite totality. Well-known specialists address each of the epochs and each of the artists studied, analyzing in particular the different moments in which the painters of these centuries have placed the figuration of the afterlife and of the universal judgment in the light of the Dante experience.

This miscellaneous volume studies Dante’s artistic reception in the field of mural painting between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries. The book also contains contributions with a focus on the artistic experience of Dante e.g. the relationship with Giotto, the contemplation of the mosaics of the Battistero di San Giovanni of Florence and of Ravenna, and their influence on the creation of his poem.

All contributions in Italian are accompanied by an English translation at the end of the book.
