Divina Commedia Manga Cover Picture

“Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
Mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
ché la diritta via era smarrita.

Ahi, quanto a dir com’era cosa dura
Esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte
Che nel pensier rinova la paura…



Yeeeeeeey im back!! 8D omgomg i finally posted this picture! 8D I’ve been workin on it for a whole month!! 8D
You see, this is a picture about a very famous Italian poem, La Divina Commedia (“The Divine Comedy). maybe it is not well known abroad, but EVERY SINGLE Italian knows it, and they know by heart at least the first stanza of the poem (the one I typed above). The poem *a HUGE one, made up of 3 canticles (whose names are Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso , each one contains 33 chants) is about the journey Dante Alighieri, a famous 1300 Italian poem *and also the creator himself of the Comedy* makes through the three supernatural reigns: Hell, Purgatory and Paradise (to each reign is dedicated a canticle) to reach the divine presence of God and obtain the grace. The cover is manga-style, though I HATE MY HUMANZ ohmai! D8

This is a Comedy because it begins with a bad situation (Dante starts his journey from the Hell) and ends up brilliantly, as the poet finally reaches God; it is Divine because “is about divine subject (Dante’s own words)

Well, if you don’t mind, I’ll write down all the characters in this cover
