In an interview with Vatican News, the President of the Pontifical Council for Culture reflects on some passages of the Pope’s Apostolic Letter «Candor Lucis Aeternae», explaining the traits of Dante’s genius and the relevance of his work. A virtual exhibition, with materials from the Vatican Library, and an interpretation of passages from the Divine Comedy with the voices of well-known actors in the Capitoline catacombs, is one of the initiatives organized by the Dante Commission, established by the Vatican and headed by the Cardinal.
