Abstract

This paper refers to a research project currently in progress, on the perception of the territory of Latina (a town to the south of Rome). The research took as its starting point the work of K. Lynch, in particular his concept of imageability, and G. Bateson’s view of the environment as ‘mental process’. The main aim of the study is to promote web-organized shaping and knowledge both of the ‘public’ image of the area under enquiry, and of the ‘partial’ images of specific groups. To this end, the web site (www.web-mageability.it), of which we present overall architecture and the associated development project, allows basic communication of the type ‘each to all’, targeting the creation of one or more ‘public’ image(s), which may be modulated in more restricted interaction patterns, enabling the development of images referable to more limited groups of people.
