abstract

This paper investigates the presence of Dante and his works in humorous and satirical illustration from the first half of the twentieth century (including periodicals like Il Travaso delle Idee, Il becco giallo, Bertoldo, Candido). Humour was often built on the contrast between the most famous characters or quotations from Dante’s Comedy and everyday situations, while Dante’s vivid description of Hell provided an ideal frame for political and social satire. Dante scholars and the 1921 celebrations also became the target of mockery.
