Dante and Dan Brown: A Journey Through Inferno and Italy
a professor and his students are trapped inside a palace while a fearsome supernatural force begins to wreak havoc in modern-day florence. it's up to one of the students to find a way to rescue the group before it's too late. our professor and companion finally reach the paradise brown has been alluding to since the very start, with their arrival at the eastern doors of the baptistery created by lorenzo ghiberti, called the doors to paradise by michelangelo himself. a crucial part of the novel takes place inside in one of the most important historical and religious spots in florence and, understandably, changes course to the pair's adventure in florence. in 2005, brown was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by time magazine, whose editors credited him with keeping the publishing industry afloat; renewed interest in leonardo da vinci and early christian history; spiking tourism to paris and rome; a growing membership in secret societies; the ire of cardinals in rome; eight books denying the claims of the novel and seven guides to read along with it; a major motion picture franchise. this room and the path the pair takes to escape the palace in a secret corridor and exit built into the walls of palazzo vecchio can be visited by anyone who takes the secret passages tour offered by palazzo vecchio as well as the new tour offered since the novel came out called the places of inferno which directly takes you to visit all of the spots visited in the novel (cost 12, book the tours here ). either these or any of the other tours offered by palazzo vecchio, especially ones designed for children, are highly recommended! the son of a mathematics teacher and a church organist, brown was raised on a prep school campus where he developed a fascination with the paradoxical interplay between science and religion. these themes eventually formed the backdrop for his books. he is a graduate of amherst college and phillips exeter academy, where he later returned to teach english before focusing his attention full time to writing. he lives in new england with his yellow lab, winston.
