Progetto di ricerca
From the sand to the snow: perceptions and representations of mountains as landscape and space of the culturally other in the Mediterranean

Tutor:Prof. Antonio Luigi Palmisano, Università del Salento
Prof. Martin Zillinger, Universität zu Köln
Descrizione progetto 

The project is about perceptions of mountains as landscape and space and mountain peoples as the “others” from the point of view of peoples of the sea in the Mediterranean area. As an ancient issue, the dichotomy between sea and mountain, today is revealed in its current political and cultural variations. The perception and representation which mountain- and maritime societies have, create and exchange, as well as how they relate themselves to the space, seem to have been little investigated. The project's aim is therefore a properly anthropological, socio-political and psychological study characterized by an analysis of the representations of mountains and their inhabitants in popular literature and cinema, as well as by a careful fieldwork inside maritime and mountain societies in a Mediterranean intended as sea surrounded by mountains.

Parole chiave: Mediterranean - perception - mountain and sea – the Other –
