maestro di color che sanno
From Dante’s Inferno (4:130-131), meaning “master of those that know.” "Vidi il Maestro di color che sanno | Seder tra filosofica famiglia" - "I saw the master of those that know, | seated amid the philosophic family" Dante frequently acknowledges his debt to Aristotle whom he calls Maestro / Master and from whose writings and teachings Dante has based much of his works on. It is said that the play on the Italian use of ‘color’ and the English ‘colour’, is a connection that Joyce intended.
