Florence, Italy — The cenotaph (empty tomb) for Dante Alighieri in the Basilica of Santa Croce, erected in 1829. The Italian poet was exiled from Florence (that sentence was rescinded in 2008) and residing in Ravenna when he died in 1321 on a return trip from Venice. Dante’s true tomb is in Ravenna at the Basilica di San Francesco.
