:Ugolino and his sons
My contribution to the wonderful DANTE International Contest

The subject of this intensely Romantic work is derived from canto XXXIII of Dante’s Inferno, which describes how the Pisan traitor Count Ugolino della Gherardesca, his sons, and his grandsons were imprisoned in 1288 and died of starvation. This statue represents the agony of Ugolio in the XXXIII canto of Dante’s Inferno, where the children are asking him to eat them to not starve “Father, we would suffer less if you would feed on us.”
