Dan Brown’s new book, Inferno, which is released this week, is anticipated to be as thrilling and gripping as his previous international blockbusters, The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons and The Lost Symbol.
Set in the heart of Italy, the book follows Harvard Professor of Symbology, Robert Langdon, as he is drawn into a distressing world centred on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces, Dante’s Inferno. Dante Alighieri, the famous poet who arguably changed Italian literature, was born in Florence in 1265 and wrote what is deemed to be the preeminent in Italian literature, the poem Divine Comedy. The poem sees Dante travel through three different parts of the afterlife: Inferno (Hell), Purgatorio (Purgatory) and Paradiso (Heaven).
Inferno is the American author’s latest novel and is the fourth to feature the fictional Harvard University professor Robert Langdon. This book takes Robert Langdon and the code-cracking adventures to the beautiful city of Florence. Like many other destinations featured in his books, Florence will be hoping the book heightens interest in the city. Florence is one of the most famous Italian cities and is the art and culture capital of Europe, known for its beautiful Renaissance churches, courtyards and art galleries. With the release of Dan Brown’s Inferno, Florence is anticipating a tourism boom as readers of the book are inspired to visit the city. A number of iconic locations, including Paris and Rome, have featured in Brown’s most famous books, and the Louvre in Paris had a starring role in The Da Vinci Code and the first Robert Langdon novel, Angels and Demons which also starred some of Rome’s key attractions. Making the most of the Florentine landscapes, Brown’s new tale includes some of Florence’s main highlights; the Palazzo Vecchio, the Baptistery, the Duomo cathedral and many more.
