Want to see a shotgun fit for a Sommo Poeta?
To mark the 700th anniversary of the passing of Dante, the famed Italian poet, writer, and philosopher, Beretta produced a one-of-a-kind shotgun.
Born in Florence in 1265, Durante degli Alighieri, better known to history as Dante, died in 1321. Among his best-known works are “Divine Comedy,” “Paradise,” and “Inferno,” which are frequently required reading in many classic Lit courses.
“To celebrate this milestone anniversary, we created a unique masterpiece 20 gauge. SL3 shotgun with 30-inch barrels, continuing the one-off series based on that platform,” noted Beretta.
It has 800 hours of engraving and inlay work in multiple styles from a team of four master engravers.
