L'Inferno di Dante. Hell is a deep funnel-like structure that reaches the Earth’s core. It is composed of nine circles, the more you go, the more narrow circles. Lucifer fell from heaven, is stuck in the center of the Earth, the farthest from God, immersed up to the bust in the underground lake Cocytus, which is perennially frozen due to cold wind produced by the constant movement of its six wings.
