We invite you to submit works for a new international architectural competition with the theme: A HOUSE FOR DANTE ALIGHIERI. How would a House for Dante Alighieri look like? Would it be on Earth? Would it be on Mars ? Where would it be? This year there are 700 years since the death of Dante Alighieri, who was the victim of malaria. We too are confronted now with death, and illness, because of Covid.

Is there a Paradise ?

Is there a Hell ?

We are not sure about the Paradise, but maybe Hell is not unknown to us.

Perhaps even Paradise should not have been unknown, but somehow it is easier to perceive Hell, it seems…

There are plans, now, to leave Earth… to go to there where there isn’t enough atmosphere and enough gravity. It seems human beings would do anything to avoid “the earthy shadows…” But aren’t these “shadows” within ourselves? Even on Mars, we would carry them with us, within us.
