CO.AS.IT. is proud to invite you to the 3MBS Dante700 Festival, a musical-artistic-literary tour de force across the inspiration provided by the work of Dante Alighieri for over seven centuries. As event partners of the Festival’s lecture series, we, together with the Dante Alighieri Society of Melbourne, look forward to welcoming you to the four talks that will take place at CO.AS.IT. The 3MBS Dante700 Festival celebrates the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s death. The festival is curated by 3MBS presenters, Margot Costanzo and Karen van Spall and commemorates the poet’s legacy through a lecture series, a broadcast festival, live performances and an Illumination’s streamed audio documentary series. The 3MBS Dante700 Festival offers something for everyone: for the curious or the informed Italophile, a lecture series, Out of Exile explores the Divine Comedy, Dante’s poetic achievements and the art that it inspired; for regular 3MBS listeners and new listeners, a broadcast festival from 13 September to 20 September 2021 will feature live-to-air performances and interviews from the curators and presenters of the Out of Exile series;
for live-music lovers, live performances of work inspired by the Divine Comedy will feature in a program called The Love that Moved the Stars during September; and for anyone in the world, the opportunity to listen at your leisure to the whole 10 hours of the Dante in Music series, presented by Margot Costanzo and technically produced by Karen van Spall, streamed from the 3MBS Dante700 Festival. Full information about the 3MBS Dante700 Festival is available on the festival website.
