EVENT NEWS: A Night with Dante, Feb. 29

The Wilkinson College of Humanities and Social Sciences 2011-2012 Series presents,  "A Night with...Dante" on Wednesday, February 29th at 7:00 PM in the Wallace All Faiths Chapel.

Italian poet, literary theorist, moral philosopher, and political thinker, Dante Alighieri is probably best known for his most famous work, the Divine Comedy, but he was also a person of profound passions and deep idiosyncrasies. He was exiled from Florence for political reasons, yet he lived a creative and remarkable life wandering the streets of Italy while his impossible love, Beatrice, became the center of his universe. We invite you to join Dante's ineffable experience: the journey of a poet, a man and a lover.

The Department of Languages- Instructor of Italian and Latin, William D'Alonzo, will be Dante for the night and will give an unforgetable performance, so don't miss out!

The event is free and open to the public. Parking for event is available after 4pm in the Fred L. Barrera Parking Structure on Sycamore and the Lastinger Parking Structure on Walnut Avenue. Cost is $2 for two hours, and $3 for four hours. For more parking information please visit
