Dante the electronic comedy - le primizie

Mary E Dwyer, Diana Modesto


This paper discusses the pilot project conducted by Australian researchers Diana Modesto, Mary Dwyer, John Scott and Paul Eggert and intended to test procedures to be used in a larger international project which would create an electronic edition of the Divine Comedy.
