CANTO I - The Dark Wood

In the first canto of the Divina Commedia, Dante's symbolic journey begins in a dark forest, where archetypes of light and darkness, virtue and sin, and good and evil converge. Facing obstacles representing sins that hinder self-realization, Dante's despair turns to hope when he encounters the wise Virgil, who becomes his guide. Together, they embark on a longer path of knowledge and atonement, as Dante seeks salvation through divine grace. This captivating narrative sets the stage for the transformative journey that lies ahead.
