A brief annotation Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) is a prominent Italian poet, one of the greatest geniuses of world literature, philosopher, politician, founder of the Italian literary language. He became a founder of a special school of poetry called himself as "sweet new style" ("Dolce nuovo style"). The main distinguishing feature of this style is the ultimate spirituality of the feeling of love. Dante included his famous poems dedicated to his beloved Beatrice Portinari in a book called "New Life" (1293-95). The pinnacle of his creations is the poem "The Divine Comedy" (edited in 1472). It consists of three parts: "Hell", "Purgatory" and "Paradise" and of a hundred songs. This poem, considered as a poetic encyclopedia of Middle Ages, had a great influence on the development of the European culture.

Опять что-то лишнее
Не понимаю , как только убираю цвета вполне отличная монета ,  монета перегружена непродуманной цветовой гаммой которая " режет " глаз .. У итальянцев была монета посвященная Данте , 500 ЛИР 1965 ГОДА , намного достойней и стилистически выверенной получилась .. :)
