The objective of this project is to study and valorise the Ravenna’s Pineta and the region around for what they represented as locus amoenus in Dante’s Comedy and in the following European literary history till the present, focusing also on the relationships between Man and Environment in Dante's Age.

Abstract

The objective of this project is to study and valorise the Ravenna’s Pineta and the region around for what they represented as locus amoenus in Dante’s Comedy and in the following European literary history till the present, focusing also on the relationships between Man and Environment in Dante's Age. The importance of this investigation lies in the fact that the Pineta of Ravenna, an ecosystem at risk due to the sea level rise, in its aspects of cultural and semi-natural landscape, has never been the subject of systematic studies, especially regarding to the medieval period. Through the study of published and unpublished archives’ written sources and the analysis of archaeo- logical data, the following topics will be investigated: A) The role of the Ravenna’s Pineta in Dante's work and more generally in the European literary panorama; B) The human settlements and the ways of exploitation of the Pineta between the end of the 13th c. CE and the first decades of the 14th c. CE; C) The impact on the coastal woodland landscape and Ravenna’s hinterland of a climate change since some decades defined in the research with the name of Dantean Anomaly and still not fully stu- died; D) The idea that Dante's contemporaries had of the Pineta.
