It is just one of the fine online projects focused on the work of Italy's master poet: The Dartmouth Dante Project, The Digital Dante Project, The World of Dante, and Dante Online, which contains music and song, imaginary interviews with Dante by scholars, and much more. Sponsored by the Società Dantesca Italiana, it has English and Italian versions.
