finished reading Dante's "Inferno"

Virgil in Canto15-
<"bene ascolta chi la nota"> -"well heeded is well heard"

Dante to Virgil in Canto29, about a soul they just met in the eighth circle who was a Sienese falsifier-
"and I to the Poet;"Was there ever a race
more vain than the Sienese? Even the French,
compared to them, seem full of modest grace." "

...even in the 14th century they didn't like the French..
