1472 is a historical
date for the city of Foligno
, but also for the history of the culture
and the Italian literature. In that day the goldsmith Emiliano Orfini
in his own places, with typographer Giovanni Numeister's
student of Gutemberg,
come by Magonza
, gave the first copy of the Divine Comedy
to the presses. Umbria was one of the first regions to
understand the importance of the publishing revolution, through the leader Trevi
to which it followed a few months later Foligno. Thanks also to the presence of
the paper mills of Pale
, the first circulation was really abundant,
calculated in around 300 samples. The event is remembered every year with
solemn celebrations and the public reading of some songs of Dante's work.
