The birth of this publishing venture: Paris, 1950. In view of the commemoration of the 700th anniversary of the birth of Dante Alighieri, the Italian government commissioned Salvador Dalì to illustrate the Divine Comedy. The artist worked there for almost nine years, giving life to 100 watercolors that in 1960 were exhibited at the Musée Galliera in Paris and transposed in woodcut by the Master Printer Raymond Jacquet. For the perfect reproduction of watercolors 3000 woods are used and up to 35 colors for each table. Adriano Salani Editore, in the person of Mario Salani, designs, together with the publishing house Arti e Scienze of Rome, an edition of the Comedy in six books, two for each song, accompanied by Dalì's plates.
The partners chosen for the purpose are the best offered by the typographical and paper landscape of the time: the Master Typographer Giovanni Mardersteig of the Valdonega Stamperia of Verona, the Cartiere Enrico Magnani of Pescia and the French Paper Mills of Rives. "The prince of the Italian language", Giovanni Nencioni, President of the Accademia della Crusca, is entrusted with the scientific supervision of the Opera. The work is in perfect condition.
