History of Italian Literature
This map is organized along an imaginary horizontal timeline running from 1182, the date of the birth of St Francis, to 2000, the end of the second millennium, with the name of each author placed graphically between their dates of birth and death. The length of the name of each author represents the length of his or her life. The overlap and chronological succession of the various authors is clear. This map is a masterwork of digital craftsmanship, where all the texts, appropriately designed for their placement, fit together beautifully..
