The End of the New World and the Beginning of Ours: The Return of Geography

Lecture by Franco Farinelli

This lecture is given on the occasion of the launch of the book Franco Farinelli. Del mapa al laberinto (Franco Farinelli: From Map to Labyrinth) by Bernat Lladó. Farinelli suggests that we should overcome our fear of the labyrinth, the only flat representation possible of the globe, since it is only from within the labyrinth that we shall be able to understand geography and the world of today (the Web, the virtual domain, landscape and the globe). This is a geography that, henceforth, cannot and must not obey the standpoint dictated by the map but must open itself to the plurality of perspectives and stories.
