About

Daniele Lombardi is a composer, pianist and visual artist of international stature thanks to his extraordinary repertoire. For several years he has directed the festival Nuova Musica Italiana e Nuova Musica Internazionale in Rome. Daniele Lombardi has taught piano at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan.

Thirty-four plaques containing fragments of Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy are dotted around the historical centre of Florence. They were placed there at the beginning of the 1900s and were intended as a reminder of those people and places that had left their mark on the city and its history: a few lines from the boundless ocean of the poem floating adrift.

divina.com was written as a mixed-media piece to be sung by David Moss and comprises ensemble, live electronics and video. It was premiered on 5 July 2004 in front of Michelangelo’s David at Florence’s Galleria dell’Accademia. The current audio edition is the live recording of that event.

divina.com comprises thirty-six episodes, one for each epigraph and a further two, which refer to Michelangelo, who had written some of Dante’s verses next to the sketches in two of his drawings. The various excerpts are in syntactical order linked to the unfolding of the composition.
