The Art Director

An Art Director is as important as having a great painter in front of a canvas. Dante's Inferno deserves the best, so I'm happy to announce Tamara Marini to take on this great and challenging task.

Ms. Marini did a fantastic job as Art Director in The Merchant of Venice with Al Pacino, proving herself as an artist that does not fear the greatest challenges. So, after I had a very pleasant conversation with her, I decided that she was the right person for this privilege position in Dante's Inferno.

In addition, Ms. Marini is a native Italian born, so she grew up with Dante's Divine Comedy book at home and school. As anyone that reads Dante's own words in his late Italian language, you can feel Dante's intense feelings as he describes his experience in the afterlife.
