The reason for this was because Dante Alighieri had many enemies.  Many of his enemies were citizens of Florence.  According to him, these people were responsible for corruption in Italy and they came from the government and the church.  In the Inferno, he envisions many terrible punishments for these people who have done so much wrong.
