Atlas of the imaginary

The Atlas of the Imaginary is an online project developed by the Centre for Visual Arts (Centro Arti Visive) of the University of Bergamo. Its purpose is to encourage scholars with very different backgrounds and experience to share a common research platform.

The Atlas is dedicated to explorations of the material and symbolic aspects of Western culture ( THEMES ) through multiple methodological approaches and the interaction between literary texts ( TEXTS ), visual images ( IMAGES ), and critical essays ( CRITICISM).

We want to look at how literary and artistic documents shape our imagination, influencing our collective and individual conceptions of reality. The intention is to open up a rich area of study, where social practices and cultural memories are investigated and negotiated.
