In 2019, Corrado Veneziano started his work on Dante Alighieri in view of the celebrations of the 700th anniversary of his death. In the course of these months it has therefore resumed his works with barcodes (in this case, thirty-four vertical lines for Hell, thirty-three for Purgatory and Heaven) and points and lines in space for the Morse alphabet, to evoke Kandinsky's suggestions. Thirty-three works have been created, all in large format and each enriched by a sentence taken from the Comedy, to tie together verbal and visual signs and references. The final project - "ISBN Dante and other visions", coordinated by the D D'Arte association directed by Francesca Barbi Marinetti - was selected on 9 October 2020 (with patronage and financial support) - by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and the National Committee Dante700 established by the Italian government.
