Beatrice (1919 film)

Beatrice is a 1919 Italian silent historical film directed by Herbert Brenon and starring Francesca Bertini.[1] It tells the story of Dante Alighieri's love to Beatrice Portinari, loosely based on Dante's poetry. It appears to be a separate film from Brenon's 1921 film The Stronger Passion, which also had the original title of Beatrice although they may be alternative versions of the same production.
