At Dante Michigan, we believe Dante must be remembered past this year and for -at least- the next 700 years. Unfortunately, his remembrance statue in Belle Isle is in poor condition.  Considering this, Dante Michigan has started work towards a restoration project to bring the statue to its past glory and carry the memory of the Sommo Poeta to future generations.

Join us on September 10 for a a pot-luck celebration.  Chat with old friends, enjoy Italian food, and take a picture with the old Dante to compare it with the fully restored statue next year* *Posting of pictures will depend on donation levels.

The event is free to the public. A kind donations would be appreciated.
