Italy has inaugurated a Historic Train, that will go on the route from Florence to Ravenna, in Occasion of 700 Years from the Major Italian Poet Dante Alighieri's Death.

The train was inaugurated on the 6th of June, is dedicated to tourists and culture lovers, and will be available from July to October, during weekends.


This route was especially created to celebrate Dante's place of birth, and of death.

The train did an exraordinary stop for the concert of "Luigi Cherubini" Orhcestra, directed by Master Riccardo Muti in occasion of the reopening of the historic theater of Animosi.


What's really interesting about this train is the fact that it is a historic one, ment to rediscover the historic patrimony of the Italian railways, historic routes and landscapes.

This inauguration was the first of a series of evens ment to do a cultural revival, in a country that was almost shut down from a cultural point of view also.

Initiatives of this genre, also featuring theatre openings, are significant as a come back to normal in a world that spent so much time in lockdown and missing outdoor activities.

Tourists are invited to take a ride with this special train, that looks similar to the "Orient Express": it has red seats, historic portraits of Dante Alighieri, and a great-looking restaurant wagon.

It seems like a train coming from the past, ready to take you in the world of culture, poetry, and significant beauty.

Or, if you want your imagination run free, it could be the train that took Harry Potter and friends directly to Hogwarts.
