Dante Alegheri Poetry Competiton 2016

The Dante Alighieri Society, established in 1889, is a society whose sole purpose is to promote the study of Italian language and culture throughout the world. The society was named after Dante Alighieri a pre-Renaissance poet from Florence and the author of The Divine Comedy. Dante is considered the father of the Italian language. One of the society's many promotional activities is the Dante Alighieri Poetry Competition where students have the opportunity to compete in any of the three different categories: Poetry Recital, Original Poetry Writing, or Discussion.

This year saw over 3,000 students participate from across Victoria, 53 of whom were Ave Maria College students. These students were required to recite an Italian poem to a panel of judges who assessed according to set criteria. Those candidates who achieved 99-100 points for the first recitation were recalled to the Finals.

Amongst a high level of competition Ave Maria College had four students selected to progress to the finals: Year 9 students Maria Agnesi, Crisitna Gattellari, Katia Pietrolungo and Year 11 student Carla Catalano.

We are proud of our students and their extraordinary achievement and congratulate them for their personal efforts.
