To commemorate the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri (1265–1321), this coin dedicated to the Prgatory is the second in a three-year series that includes two more issues – one in 2021 and one in 2023, dedicated to the Inferno and Paradise respectively.

Dante's most innovative and visionary work, called the Divine Comedy, has always been considered as one of the greatest literary masterpieces of all time, both by the poet’s contemporaries and by subsequent generations. Obverse: profile of Dante Alighieri, detail inspired by a painting by Sandro Botticelli (private collection). Around, the inscription “REPUBBLICA ITALIANA” with a star at its end (€20 Coin with coloured elements). Reverse: representation of Purgatorio encircled by the sea, the sun and the stars and, at the end of the last terrace, a wall of fire and the Divine Forest standing out on its top; around, the inscription “PURO E DISPOSTO A SALIRE A LE STELLE” (pure and willing to rise to the stars), the closing verse of the cantica of Purgatorio. On the right, the value “5 EURO”; on the left “R”, identifying the Mint of Rome; below, the date “2022”, the year of the coin’s issue, and the name of the designer “MOMONI”. Coin with coloured elements.
