SORDELLO

***

Fellow Mantuan

Sordello embraces Virgil

Unlike Inferno

***

NOTE: When Sordello finds out that Virgil is from the city of Mantua, Sordello embraces him because they come from the same city. Such things did not happen in the Inferno. When Dante met Farinata, a fellow Florentine, the two men argued instead of embracing each other.
