On the seventh centenary of his death, publications dedicated to the author of The Comedy are multiplying. With Dante, nostro padre. Il pensatore visionario che ha fondato l’Italia (Vallecchi), Marcello Veneziani stands out from the chorus and conducts an analysis that exalts the cultural and moral legacy of the great poet and identifies him as the princeps, that is, the beginning and origin, of the Italian nation.
