Who is Francesca da Rimini
Francesca is a literary figure. At the beginning “Francesca da Polenta” was considered a sinner in Hell for Dante and for commentators of ancient times.
Then, her character was transformed into a virtuous heroine, daughter of the Enlightenment and Romanticism, destined to inspire more than a thousand artists, of every expressive form of art, all around the world.
She became, between the nineteenth and twentieth century, myth and icon of fidelity, freedom and respect for the fundamental rights of the human being.
