The pages published are some of the paragraphs of the book that geographer Franco Farinelli will publish with Einaudi in early 2009. With his volume "Critica della ragione cartografica. Introduzione alla geografia della globalità", Farinelli continues the geographic destructurization started in the previous book, always published by Einaudi, "Geografia. Un'introduzione ai modelli del mondo" (Torino, Einaudi, 2003). However, while the first book revolves around the concepts of space and landscape the new book reflects on the territory. The two paragraphs published in this issue concern the reasons underlying the Prussian introduction of the "mute map" in geography and the one-way relationship between subject and cartography.
