The designers of the Italian studio Alpaca Società Cooperativa have created a detailed interactive map of hell based on Dante Alighieri's poem "The Divine Comedy". All nine circles of hell that the author goes through, accompanied by the ancient Roman poet Virgil, are illustrated and signed: flames and snakes, devils that punish unhappy souls according to their sins, and a huge Lucifer that devours the three main traitors in the history of mankind — Judas Iscariot and those who killed Caesar Brutus and Cassius.

The creators of the project believe that such a detailed and detailed interactive map will help to develop visual memory.

Their half-animal nature reflects the sins and vices of humans. Actually, the antiquity of the first circle means that the ancient culture is pagan and, accordingly, sinful, since it is not marked with the sign of Christ.
