È sempre molto difficile presentare un libro in una lingua diversa da quella dell’autore. 

Tanto più un libro complesso come la Divina Commedia e scritto in una lingua che è difficile anche per gli italiani. D’altra parte è una cosa che faccio assolutamente volentieri e sono contentissimo di essere qui perché credo che Dante abbia qualcosa di importante da dire in Italia, qui e in tutto il mondo.

Dear friends!

Wholeheartedly we congratulate you on the Feast of feasts –
Christ’s Resurrection from the dead!
Already here, on earth, Easter frees us from slavery and fear.
Easter gives us wise hope in our resurrection and eternal life.
Easter brings us perfect communion in Christ’s love.
