Art/Literary / Dante, Canto II
Italian term or phrase: Andovvi
Is this "andó" + "vi"? If so, is it an archaic contraction or is it still used?

Andovvi poi lo Vas d'elezïone,
per recarne conforto a quella fede
ch'è principio a la via di salvazione.



Later, the Chosen Vessel went there,
that he might bring thence confirmation of that faith
which is the beginning of the way of salvation.

(Canto 2. 28-30)
