OVI Seminar Series 2024, IV

Investigating the phenomenon of the so-called ‘rhythmic figures’ in Dante through a new database and query platform for the Commedia, which aims at setting up a new, wide catalogue of verses that the poet repeats or remembers and, on the basis of the rhythmic and syntactic model provided to him, varies to derive new ones. One of the results of this research are new clues on the scanning or pronunciation of individual lines of Dante‚Äôs work – with internal references that provide us with a sort of score inside the work. After an overview of the new Digital Humanities platform, this talk will offer notes on the performance or the vocal realization of Dante‚Äôs verse. Join us on Wednesday, April, 17, 2024, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET.
