Nine more years passed, and in a narrow Florentine street, in front of the door of a small church, Dante and Beatrice met again, in the encounter that would be the most important and inspiring moment of universal literature and poetry… And although in real life, between them there was only an exchange of glances, his love was so immense that after the death of his beloved at the age of 24, Dante promised not to write anything else about Beatrice until he could create “about her”. what has not been written about any woman before.” And thus was born one of the most important literary works in the history of mankind, “The Divine Comedy”.
