Abstract

The epochal changes speeded up by the globalization of new things, technologies and knowledge, pose new questions and new paradigms about the sense of places and the desire for their collective and individual sharing. Millions of people move in time and space, approached and constricted by the technological progress, with outstanding speed. we are witnessing the evolution of cartographic representation as a science of survey and knowledge of the world accenting their value in practical use in the system of social, economic and political relations. The project for new maps for Calabria starts from the necessity to resume the sense of an interrupted story, able to bring out values and evocative visions of a region that regains its status as a historical-artistic tòpos to strengthen its own identity in the more general context of the global ‘journey’. In this framework the map, aims to create not only the figurative representation of the reality, but above all a “place of the mind” the revival of an idea of territory that goes beyond thereal/imaginary relationship, confronting the desire, the discovery, the evocative story, a property of the region.
