The seven hundredth anniversary of Dante's death commemorates the poet's presence in Sarzana in 1306. The exhibition Dante and Giotto. Dialogue and suggestion, at the Lia Museum until 19 December 2021, displays precious works on a gold background from Dante's time that are part of the Museum's permanent collection, together with others on temporary loan.
