The author: Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) is one of Italy's and the world's most revered poets, best known for his epic masterpiece, "The Divine Comedy." "La Vita Nuova" (The New Life) is one of his earliest works, showcasing his poetic genius and deep affection for Beatrice Portinari, his muse and inspiration.

The binder: The Giulio Giannini bindery, a prestigious Florentine bookbinding firm known for its traditional techniques and beautiful designs, has crafted the binding for this edition. The gilt decoration on vellum, along with the red-edged pages, exemplifies the craftsmanship and aesthetic appeal that collectors and bibliophiles cherish.
