Bibbiena and the Archiano

My frozen body near unto its outlet
The robust Archian found, and into Arno
Thrust it, and loosened from my breast the cross

Purgatorio, canto V (124-126)

 

Bibbiena, located at the confluence of the Archiano and the Arno rivers, is an emblematic place. It was in the Archiano that Bonconte da Montefeltro, mentioned in the fifth canto of the Purgatorio, died.
