This brief report discusses Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari’s Purgatorio 2019 at Ravenna’s Teatro delle Albe. The report sets out three aspects of the political remediation of Dante’s Purgatorio that the Teatro delle Albe has offered: first, a plurilingual, pluricultural vision of Italy; second, an emphasis on denouncing domestic violence; and third, an environmentalist impulse that reads the tropes of care and cultivation in Dante’s canticle in the light of the notable engagement of today’s youth to protest our current state of environment crisis.
