LANDSCAPE AND PARISH MAPS

Landscape and Parish Maps

Landscape Maps

A landscape map originates from the idea of landscape as an expression of civilisation and multicultural environment, and it is important in every place as it represents the quality of life of a population.
As opposed to the parish maps, the “organised content” of every landscape map is the starting point to create activities, laboratories, paths… all the “cultural facts” that happen in a territory which are made available to anyone as a programme of storytelling and experiences.
Landscape maps can be countless and the community itself can take care of their implementation.


Parish Maps

Parish maps were born in England in the early 80s. These maps come to life thanks to the active participation of the population. They are designed to outline the heritage a community values, to strengthen local identity and to set the stage for a sustainable development.
The perception of a place, a landscape, a point in time can bring out collective memory, actions, relationships, facts, values, activities that are more people-related than geography or history-related. The development of a parish map encourages communities to identify what surrounds them. Parish maps help recognise all the meaningful relationships with places and activities that may not usually be considered.
