We present a synsemic analysis of the medieval portolan chart “Carta Pisana”, a map for marine navigation. We talked about this visual artifact even in this post (in italian).
You can find our visual analysis on Pdf:
and on Prezi:
We decided to publish the analysis even on Prezi because we use it widely to design, write and think together. We use this application (or misuse it) as a sort of partecipative synsemic tool.
This is a supplement of the analysis of the image “XIII/B” presented in:
Perondi, L., Romei, L., 2011, “Letture da recuperare”, in «La Vita Nòva», iPad magazine of «Il Sole 24 Ore», April, n. 2, v. 1.1.
All experts of medieval cartography are kindly invited to criticize and improve our analysis.
Have a good visual reading!
