This meeting, sponsored by the Devers Program in Dante Studies, has been organized in connection with the Research Project: “Dante’s Florentine Vernacular Culture, 1280-1301”. It seeks to reconsider Dante’s relationship to Brunetto Latini by endeavouring to examine their possible connections in terms of their possible earlier and evolving contacts whether historical or textual.
