Cartography, topography and landscapes in didactics. Geo-cartographic metaphors of Dante Alighieri
In the didactic of our schools, the cartographic method is not sufficiently
proposed or when offered the method is obsolete. Books and schoolbooks
contain extraordinary set images of exclusive landscapes, also easily accessible
by multimedia tools. Reality of places, instead, from what is observed
from a classroom window to that of distant regions can be recognized and
associated to the cartographic representation, both hard copy o digital. Integrated
use of cartographic tools of the past (maps and historical maps),
prints or paintings of famous artists, “narratives” in places of literature (the
Divine Comedy as an example), is an endearing, unsuspected and winning
didactic aim in today school of any degree levels.
