Dante’s tomb is close to the Basilica of St Francis in Ravenna, the surrounding area is named the “Dante area” and is an “area of silence”.
In fact, the exiled Florentine Dante died in Ravenna on September 13th 1321.
The sepulchre is a small neoclassic construction built by the architect Camillo Morigia in 1780. From the vault of the shrine hangs a votive lamp fuelled with oil from the Tuscan hills, offered by the city of Florence each year to commemorate the death of the divine poet.
