The Back Story

Who was Beatrice?

Historians are not unanimous about this story, but the literary character of Beatrice in Dante’s work seems to refer to Beatrice “Bice” di Folco Portinari (1265-1290). She was Dante’s muse whom he loved in a medieval courtly way.

They met only twice, according to Dante. The first time on a beautiful day in May when they were both 9 years old and again 9 years later. The daughter of a rich banker, she was married to someone else, but must have made a strong impression.

Dante refers to Beatrice in poetry and prose. In the Divine Comedy she is the one that leads the writer into heaven. But once in the poetic Garden of Eden there’s no happy ending.
