Excerpt from The Divine Comedy

So has one Guido from the other taken The glory of our tongue, and he perchance Is born who from their nest shall chase them both.

The Palazzo Vecchio was built when Dante was twenty-four years old. Five years later the builders were at work on the Baptistery and Cathedral and Dante was but in his thirty-fifth year when there were cast for the Baptistery those brazen gates which Michael Angelo declared worthy to be the gates of heaven. Then also to these works the building of the city walls was added and for the towers and barricades of factious chiefs within the town, which were ordered to be reduced or abolished, there were set up fortress-walls for the shelter of a working common wealth. Outside the walls an active race of husbandmen, fearless possessors of the goods they earned, tilled the ground, formed canals, and raised embankments against floods, with capital borrowed from the townspeople, who shared the harvests and paid all the land-tax.
