to Dante's Inferno Official website! The official
website of Dante's Inferno came about due to
some confusion in several industries as to "who is
who" in the real development of major productions
based on the true story of Dante Alighieri's masterpiece trilogy - The Divine Comedy.
concept of making films and other productions based on Dante's
Divine comedy was born in 2001, when producer Boris
Acosta was inspired to pursue a live action film
of Dante's Inferno and its sequels Purgatorio and Paradiso. At the time, the research began
as to what had been done in the film industry, and how
well (or bad) the adaptation of this great masterpiece
was. To his surprise the only well made adaptation of Dante's Inferno was produced in 1911 as
the first Italian feature film in history. Obviously,
it was a silent film, but the imagination and vision of L'Inferno team to
bring Dante's work to the screen the way he wrote,
is still commemorable today and the version to beat. This precious film has been restored
and digitized by several companies and organizations, including ours. L'Inferno (1911) is now available in DVD and clips from it are featured in our documentaries.
road to write Dante's Inferno script was a long
one and tedious work that Dino Di Durante took to his
heart, so much that it has been rewritten 16 times and
has taken a few years to develop. The script was embraced
from the start by director Armand Mastroianni when
he read the 15th version of it and later listened to the
last version read by several actors. A couple of
table reads took place as well as a casting audition the second time around in
2007 producer Boris Acosta presented his vision
of making movies, magazines, books, merchandise and games
of all kinds, among other things, to a major corporation
based in San Francisco. They agreed to develope the
video game with him. However, the deception started there,
and it followed to take over Mr.
Acosta's vision to bring about Dante's Divine
Comedy to every possible corner in the world. The
difference has been that Mr. Acosta's vision
of doing it the way Dante wrote the poem has
not been possibly challenged to date by anyone.
this website you'll be able to learn about most productions
under way or completed, not just films, but also books,
magazines, games, and more.
