During this tour, touring both cities, we will discover what links Dante, a Florentine, with Siena and San Gimignano. In search of consensus in a period that sees San Gimignano poised between Guelph and Ghibelline power but above all between two powerful territorial realities such as Siena and Florence; Dante in 1300 gave a speech in the hall of the Podestà in San Gimignano, which will later be named after him. Dante in Siena, the commemorative plaques of Siena affixed in 1921 for the 600th anniversary of his death, the Sienese characters mentioned in the Divine Comedy with anecdotes about history, those who fought for Siena or died of love, the search for a mysterious river that will lead to the purchase of a port during the maximum splendor of the city.
