Advertising Firm
The CSBS group was brought together under a simple idea. That idea was to be an amazing advertising group. What we are advertising now however, is not your normal product. We intend to sell you our poet Dante Alighieri. He is a man of great achievements and one to be recognized by the modern age. We are here to aid you in this matter and we are happy to do so. We intend to make you fall in love with Dante and his works, just as we have.

“Dry-land, and 'neath whose cope was put to death
The Man who without sin was born and lived.
Thou hast thy feet upon the little sphere
Which makes the other face of the Judecca.
Here it is morn when it is evening there;
And he who with his hair a stairway made us
Still fixed remaineth as he was before.
Upon this side he fell down out of heaven;
And all the land, that whilom here emerged,
For fear of him made of the sea a veil,
And came to our hemisphere; and peradventure
To flee from him, what on this side appears
Left the place vacant here, and back recoiled."

Modern Influences
Given the world a poem that has lasted through time and influenced others simultaneously
Has captivated readers for centuries,
Gave general public a mental image of Hell
Video Game
The story is based on Inferno, the first canticle of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, and shares many similarities with the poem
The game follows the exploits of Dante (reimagined as a Templar knight) as he journeys through the nine circles of Hell to reclaim the soul of his beloved Beatrice from the hands of Lucifer
