What was the first immediate reaction of Dante’s sons, Jacopo e Pietro, to their father’s Comedy? Or more concretely, how did they react to their father’s masterpiece and, consequently, to the popularity that it had already attained? From the many recorded praises, or better said “the glorification” that occurred at the death of their father, we may solely assume that the sons of the poet clearly recognized not only the prestige, but the stature attained by their father.
