A perfect mix coming a few miles away from our facility in Tuscany. Dante Alighieri, known as the father of the Italian language, was born in Florence in 1265 and died and was buried in Ravenna in 1321. Among the many poems and works, his epic poem, The Divine Comedy,  is split into three parts and traces a pilgrim’s journey through hell, purgatory and heaven.

The basic structural component of The Divine Comedy is the canto. The poem consists of 100 cantos, which are grouped together into three sections, or canticles, Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. Technically there are 33 cantos in each canticle and one additional canto, contained in the Inferno, which serves as an introduction to the entire poem.

PAOLETTI GUITARS – DANTE’S PROJECT
The company pays homage to the past with a limited run of guitars celebrating Dante’s vision. Today, June 1st, the 3 guitars are ready to shine and remember the Poet. A limited design by Paoletti Guitars, that will be available on this models for this year only.
Mr.Paoletti, master builder and owner himself is taking care of every details, making these fine instruments from the centenarian woods selection, up to the end of the works.

HELL – INFERNO /in·fèr·no/
“In the middle of the journey of our life I came to myself within a dark wood where the straight way was lost.”

PURGATORY – PURGATORIO /pur·ga·tò·rio/
“To course across more kindly waters now, my talent’s little vessel lifts her sails, leaving behind herself a sea so cruel.”

HEAVEN – PARADISO /pa·ra·dì·ṣo/
The glory of the One who moves all things permeates the universe and glows in one part more and in another less.”
