Suitable for all

Franco Farinelli is the second guest in the cycle of five lectures delivered by some of the most distinguished contemporary historians. The lectures will investigate the European dimension by reflecting on the human urge to cross borders, whether driven by curiosity or despair, hunger or the desire to conquer and always transforming themselves and others.

Christopher Columbus’s enterprise was made possible by the logic behind spatial modelling, which is based on the idea that cartographic representations precede reality. It’s the hypothesis that Planet Earth is a sphere that made the journey possible. It’s not just Columbus either, but all of the following culture of modernity that forced reality to adjust to a map.

Today, the advent of the Internet has dismantled this logic, depriving of their meaning the assumptions that have made spatial modelling work. In doing so, almost archaic conditions are restored and we are obliged to create our idea of the world once again, and to re-set it in antispatial terms.
