In the current society one of the instruments of the mass communication is the image. Used in different ways images constitute a language that communicates messages not always ethically correct, also in the space representation. Through the conceptual and iconographic evolution of the representation of the space we provide the students useful tools to know and understand the geo-cartographic language in order to facilitate autonomy of opinion.
The course is made by three parts
-from the representation to the imaging of the space
-types of geographicity
-analysis and use of the geographicity in the mass communication
