La Secchia rapita
This visualization is created for researcher Emma Grootveld as part for the application of a small grand wihtin the
Digital Humanities. This research project aims to investigate ways of representing rivers in ‘literary worlds’ of the Italian Renaissance.
The aim of the project is to develop one or more samples for the digital visualization of these worlds,
in which extraliterary, ‘real world’ geography is combined with fictional, imaginative geography.
The project serves as a technical preparation for the Veni-proposal (to be submitted in August 2019) of a research project that aims to investigate the pivotal role of rivers in constructing cultural and literary identity in early modern Italian epic poetry.
