We do not know why Dante was in Mantua when he took part in the dispute on the difference in height between land and water, between the continent and the sea, a relevant theme in the cosmology of the period. We do know, however, that the dispute resumed in Verona in January 1320. Although the treatise was first printed in 1508, it attracted only minor interest compared to other works by Dante. In 1905, Leo Olschki decided to republish the 1508 edition of this work to popularize it with the general public. Today, 116 years later, the Olschki publishing house reprints that same edition pursuing the same objective as Leo.
