Here I will show that Dante Alighieri did not just limited himself to know and incorporate some concepts of it (for example, "divine wisdom", "mystical union", "divine will") on his works, but he did also interact with intellectual circles interested in Neoplatonism, Maimonides' ideas,Abraham Abulafia's teachings and Jewish mysticism too. Such interactions took place in Bologna and in Verona where the aforementioned ideas and the Ecstatic Kabbalah were discussed with great interest from both Christians and Jews. Thus, a demonstration of how Middle Age meant even cultural confrontations between these two religions.

JACOPO BUFFO, graduate student at the Università degli Studi di Milano, has focused on his two final thesis, "Islam and Escathology on the Inferno's XXVIII Canto" (2010) and "Signs and sounds from Kabbalah to Dante" (2013), respectively the delicate issue of Dante's knowledge of Islam and his likely awareness of Jewish mysticism.
