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.
