Project background

The Apennines Atlas of the Fondazione Symbola is a book that explores the extraordinary environmental and cultural world of the Apennines, a mountain range extending along the length of the Italian peninsula.

The atlas uses visual designs to explain the geomorphological, hydrographic and climatic characteristics of the landscape, with detailed descriptions of flora and fauna.

It also offers an in-depth insight into the demographic, economic and cultural aspects of the region, together with the digital identity that it has developed on the web. This set of insights matches user data with most frequently searched terms to help understand how people perceive the Apennines.

«This book is both a political and cultural challenge to raise awareness of The Apennines physically, geographically, historically and economically.»

Domenico Sturabotti - President of Parco Nazionale dell’Appennino Tosco-Emiliano
