    The World of Dante offers a hypermedia environment for the study of the Inferno. This project is designed to appeal to the different purposes of a wide range of readers, not simply those with scholarly interests. Included are searchable texts of the Italian-language original of the Inferno as edited by Giorgio Petrocchi and published by Mondadori (Milan, Italy, 1966-67; 2nd ed., Florence, Le Lettere, 1994); The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri and Inferno, translated by Alan Mandelbaum (New York, Bantam Books, 1980); and a wide variety of pertinent visual material. The latter includes the site's own dynamically generated VRML visualization of Dante's Inferno; this requires a VMRL viewer.

  • 8. European Colonialism in the Early 20th Century: Italian Colonies in North Africa and Aggression in East Africa, 1930-1939

    Italian colonial aspirations and policies mimicked those of other European countries during the modern period. Italian colonial policy during the period 1930-1939 was shaped more by Fascism. Fascist tenets related to governance and social policy were used in the administration and treatment of the African population in Libya, Eritrea, Somalia, and Italian East Africa. This collection comprises correspondence, studies and reports, cables, maps, and other kinds of documents related to U.S. consular activities. U.S. Consulates were listening posts reporting on the activities of the Italian colonial governments and later the mandate authorities, and the activities of the native peoples. Highlights include the Italo-Ethiopian War and the activities of American expatriates in the conflict and conflicts between Italian, British and French colonial governments in Northeast Africa. Source Library: U.S. National Archives.
