NLM “Đurđe Crnojević” will once again mark April 23 - World Book and Copyright Day, in a slightly changed environment due to the current situation with the COVID 19 virus.

On the occasion of marking the 700th anniversary of the death of the great Italian poet and one of the greatest names in world literature - Dante Alighieri, the Library has prepared an online presentation of the most significant copies of the “Divine Comedy” in its holdings, in the form of two video presentations and photographs of editions with valuable illustrations and ornaments. Due to its universal messages, Dante's literary work is part of the world's literary and cultural heritage, and various events are organized in his honor in Italy and around the world in 2021.

The funds of our National Library contain valuable and rare editions of “Divine Comedy”, so this is a unique opportunity to present them to the general public, as well as significant critical works on the most important poem of the Middle Ages and Dante himself.  The edition published in Milan in 1908, illustrated with drawings by the great Italian artists Michelangelo, Raphael, Vasari… stands out for its beauty, and the work published in Naples in 1863 is also considered an edition of great value. As for the other library materials, we will mention a postcard showing Dante's birth house in Florence (Casa ove abitò Dante Alighieri), published in Milan in 1915. Domestic edition worth mentioning is the translation of “Divine Comedy”, published in 1910 in Kotor, under the title “Divna gluma”.

The Library has prepared a presentation of the most important editions of “Divine Comedy” in its holdings in the form of two video presentations and a selection of photographs that are available at following links:

These are Library’s surplus books which are from various fields. All of this will be organized in strict compliance with the prescribed measures for protection against COVID19 virus.
