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 and will probably not stand a couple of years, let alone to 2721! 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 for the first DAS in-person event of the year on September 11: a pot-luck celebration and fund-raising kick off to restore the statue. 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

MAKE YOUR KIND DONATION HERE – 700 for Dante 2021 marks the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri’s death.
