his volume contains some of the contributions discussed during the Workshop «Luogo è in Inferno ...». Viaggio a Malebolge (December 5th, 2016) held at the Pontaniana Academy of Naples.The book, introduced by Margherita De Blasi, includes two essays of a general order, on Malebolge as a whole (Pinto, Cappelli) and three essays (Celotto, Varela-Portas, Fenzi) dealing with single canti (in particular, XVIII and XXI- XXIII) and related with exegetical problems. The authors have had the opportunity to take advantage of a wide, open editorial space, without any conditioning of "character numbers", neither of themes nor of critical postures. With this approach, the book may aspire to offer some progress in research or some wide-ranging suggestions – just remember the important proposals on the function and the meaning of the figure of Gerion, offered by Pinto; the interpretations of the fabula of the Frog and the Mouse, both doctrinally refined even if strongly divergent, advanced by Varela-Portas and Fenzi; the deepening of the concept and the extent of the Sinata linguae played by Celotto, as well as the reflection on the "bestiality" of reason when it is addressed to the evil proposed by Cappelli. The Malebolge affair, in short, now more than ever, with its political-civil sins, with its pressing denunciation of the public hypocrisy of the ruling classes (the social level of the group is very high) still has much to say, not only on the level of critical historical reconstruction, but on that of current questions, without the theme of involving the present and comparing it by questioning the Ancient Age.
