Forlì show to mark 700th anniversary of Dante's death

'Strongly symbolic place' says Uffizi chief Schmidt

(ANSA) - FLORENCE, JUL 7 - Florence's Uffizi gallery is organizing a major show in Forlì next year to mark the 700th anniversary of Dante's death, director Heike Schmidt said Tuesday.
    "A great show will be dedicated to the Supreme Poet in a strongly symbolic place, because it was in those lands that the author of the Divine Comedy spent several years of his exile," Schmidt said.
    "For this extraordinary initiative the Uffizi gallery will make available, as well as art historians, some of the works most closely linked to Dante and his time.
    "There will also be loans from all over the world"m Schmidt said. (ANSA).
