Our venue

Dante Arte alla Casa Bianca foundation wishes to host individual visitors and groups of up to 15 people. We welcome both scholars and art lovers.
In an era of great ferment and migration, our Foundation aims to be a meeting point for all cultures and religions, to unite them under the banner of mutual respect and admiration. In this respect, we will hold conferences, concerts and readings of Dante’s Divine Comedy.
The Fondazione Dante Arte alla Casa Bianca is a cultural hub, with a mandate to promote events, in particular, those focused on the study of Dante Alighieri. At its headquarters in Cascia, the Foundation holds the entire collection of paintings by the painter Maestro Raffaello Mori. Created between 1980 and 2000, the ArteNatura project carries the observer through Mori’s life and experience.

The Kitāb Al-Mi’ rāj

The Kitāb Al-Mi’ rāj is a Muslim book concerned with Prophet Muhammad’s ascension into Heaven (known as the Mi’ rāj), following his miraculous one-night journey from Mecca to Jerusalem (the Isra). The book is formed by 85 chapters. In the second half of the 13th century the book was translated into Latin and Spanish, and soon thereafter into Old French. Its Islamic depictions of Hell are believed to have been a major influence on Dante’s 14th century masterpiece, the Divine Comedy.


Hell, Purgatory, Paradise

The Divine Comedy is an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri between 1308 and his death in 1321.
It is widely considered as the preeminent work of Italian literature and it seen as one of the greatest works of world literature.
The poem’s imaginative and allegorical vision of the afterlife is a culmination of the medieval world-view as it had developed in the western Church.
It helped establish the Tuscan dialect, in which it is written, as the standardised Italian language. It is divided into three parts: Hell, Purgatory e Paradise.
