Easter is the symbol of change and rebirth. But sometimes changes scare us. In the following audio we analyze a passage from the Divine Comedy by Dante and find out how social changes have always been percieved as scary, even in the Middle Ages.

Listen to the audio and on a sheet of paper write the Italian words missing from the following text.


In Paradiso (._._._._._. XVI), Dante incontra Cacciaguida, un suo antenato. Cacciaguida ._._. ._._._._._._._. di Firenze e dice pressappoco così: Firenze, (negli anni 1100 e 1200), è stata una città perfetta, ma ora, (nel 1300), con l'._._._._._._._._._._._._., la decadenza e le lotte politiche, è una città ._._._._._._._._.!
Cacciaguida però non ha mai saputo ._._._., nel 1400 e 1500, Firenze è diventata la "culla" ._._._. grande Rinascimento italiano, e che l'immigrazione, la decadenza e le lotte ._._._._._._._._._. sono ancora oggi un argomento attuale!

In Paradise ( ................... XVI), Dante meets Cacciaguida, one of his ancestors. Cacciaguida ................... about Florence and says something like: "Florence, (in the years 1100 and 1200), was a perfect city, but now, (in 1300), with ..................., decadence and political struggles, it is a ................... city!"

However, Cacciaguida has never known ................... in the years 1400 and 1500, Florence became the "cradle" ................... great Italian Renaissance, and that immigration, decadence and ................... struggles are still a current topic today!
