Because Dante and Beatrice… can also wear running shoes!
“…sovra candido vel cinta d’uliva donna m’apparve, sotto verde manto vestita di color di fiamma viva…”
(La Divina Commedia – Purgatorio, Canto XXX, 31-33)
The verses that describe the first meeting between Dante and Beatrice in the Divine Comedy, when the Poet on top of the mountain of Purgatory is witnessing a procession with floats and songs of praise surrounded by angels and pious souls.
