La Commedia 28. Casella

from Purgatorio, Canto II

Woodcut-La Commedia 28. Casella

Dante shouts ”Casella mio!” when he sees the newly arrived soul from his hometown Florence. In life Dante’s friend Casella was a well-known singer who composed melodies for Dante’s verses and sang them. Dante tries in vain to embrace Casella three times only to find out the soul has no body. The mood is a light-hearted and human one as opposed to the dark and terrifying in Hell.
