Abstract

This work aims to approach the phenomenon of culture through the development of new methods and more powerful tools to capture the content of digitally stored literary material. The authors chose as a test bed Dante's characters of al di là, a domain consisting in a set of data and relations complex enough to sharpen existing tools. The methods of investigation under development should help scholars of a literary text to concretize part of their interpretative intentions. For this purpose, the authors adopt advanced methodologies suitable to obtain a rich representation, expressing the multirelational network inherent in the text.
