Many people living in city (especially literature lovers) would have heard
about Dante’s classic ‘The Divine Comedy’. However, not many would be
aware that the two original manuscripts of this classic literary work is
available at the heritage ‘Asiatic Library’ in Mumbai. In fact, it was in the
year 1930, that Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini tried in vain to acquire
these manuscripts. Apparently, he had offered a huge sum of about one
million pounds for those manuscripts, yet the library declined the offer.
