>Checked my version again.  Still "Ogne".  Not that I speak Italian.

Then either it is a misspelling, or an example of Dante's old Italian.
It makes some sense, sort of. If one extends the singular/plural rules,
'Ogne' could be a singular adjective masculine (but then speranza should
be masculine, and it's not.. hope is one of those singular feminine things),
or a plural feminine  adjective (but then speranza should be a mighty
plural speranze and it's not),

..and anyway ogne isn't listed  in my 2003 Garzanti (big dictionary
of today's Italian) or any of my other dictionaries.
