LVPA CAPITOLINA (Sunt qui dicant eam factam esse aetate quae vocatur media):
... itum est in uiscera terrae.
Lasciate ogne speranza ...
wikipedia dixit:The Three Shades (Les Trois Ombres) was originally 98 cm high. The over-life size group was initially made of three independent figures in 1899. Later on, Rodin replaced one hand in the figures to fuse them together, in the same form as the smaller version. The figures originally pointed to the phrase "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate" ("Abandon all hope, ye who enter here") from Canto III of the Inferno.
