The Monaco meeting traced the long and complex path of the translations of the masterpiece of the supreme poet, also known in China, marked in some cases by inaccuracies that did not even spare the famous incipit “in the middle of the path of our life“ until reaching the important translation of the distinguished professor Tien DeWang.

Eugenio Benedetti Gaglio, bankers such as Carlo Maturi, EFG; members of the aristocracy and journalism, such as the Marquise Liliana Valenti Durazzo and Count Niccolò Caissotti di Chiusano, financier and refined socialite.
