Of Acquasparta. The direction of travel.
Guelphs and Ghibellines forget old frictions. The name comes from afar. Born in Umbria around 1240, Matteo d'acquasparta Lords Bentivegna was a philosopher, theologian and Cardinal. In 1288 Boniface VIII sent him as legate Apostolic in Florence, in an attempt to pacify the Guelph Donati and circles, especially when it came to the Pope's ear the news circles had allied with the ghibelline cities of Pisa and Arezzo. The historical period is that of Dante Alighieri and the journey back in time is in memory of the great journey: that of pina comedy, that fascinates and stun for poetic power, great answers to questions of human existence. The path that we do today seems more simple, made of days often equal. It is precisely for this reason that our view of the world, the meaning we give to life and energy that we send to others and to ourselves pentane so important, vital. "With that extent that man measures himself, measuring her things". Ever more we could do our sentence, hoping to ennoble with "stuff" the world around us.

The great poet named Matthew in pina comedy (Paradiso, canto XII, verses 124-126)
Well I say, anyone who tries to foil sheet
our volume, even you will find paper
or ' would read "I am that i soglio";
but fia not from Casal d'acquasparta or,

And his judgment was not benevolent, rebuking him for having weakened the Franciscan rule, mainly dealing with earthly but the severe judgment is surely attributable Dante's aversion to Boniface VIII which Matthew was Legate and friend. After leaving Florence supported the policy of the pontiff in his conflict with Philip the fair. Staunch and outspoken defender of augustinianism, shooting the thought of St. Bonaventure was its faithful disciple, to oppose the Aristotelianism and thomism. Matthew plays the theme of enlightenment pina, Augustinian theory of light, as fertilization of the intellect, which by virtue of it throws itself open forms of creatures.
