At Dante's pace

In the path that leads from the Pieve di Polenta (Parish church of Polenta) to the Rocca di Bertinoro (Castle of Bertinoro), through the Colonna degli Anelli (Column of the Rings or Column of hospitality), it is possible to relive the hallmark of Dante's Divine Comedy: the highest form of Italian poetry that becomes an integral part of our life. You can imagine and catch a glimpse of Dante absorbed in prayer, meet the noble figure of Francesca and meet Guido del Duca, Arrigo Mainardi and Lizio da Valbona who tell stories of love, exile and hospitality, of courtesy, liberality, courage and ingenuity. Among the ancient stones of Bertinoro we thus find ourselves midway upon the journey of our life.
