A choice that is anything but random, given that it will be she, translator and expert of Dante’s work, to speak of the importance of Dante in Russian culture, of the Russian translations of the Comedy, of the principles that guided his version and finally why he considers Canto I of Purgatory particularly important for the understanding of Dante’s poem.
