    La Movie Map interattiva tra neogeography e visual storytelling. Il caso studio della serie televisiva Màkari
    (2023)
    Malvica, Sonia
    In a postmodern context marked by non-representational theories as well as user-based participatory design, cartographic considerations find application in neogeography, i.e. making the underlying technology GIS available to a non-expert user. As in the landscapes research, cartography embraces an alternative approach to the expert-based one; accordingly, in the tourism field, the democratic use of an interactive digital map would allow the implementation of the phygital experience’s dynamics, of which smart tourism is a pivotal realization. By supporting the evocative power of the map in terms of marketing and destination management, this work proposes the application of the above considerations to film-induced tourism, i.e., niche tourism related to cinematographic and television feature film. The case of the television series Màkari (2021 - ongoing, directed by Michele Soavi) allows exploring the Sicilian territory through the movie map’s language, whose language is compatible with both film-induced and slow/naturalistic tourists, in order to make up for the island’s logistic weakness.

    Stima dell’impronta carbonica del settore dei trasporti. Un’analisi geografica sulle rotte marittime e terrestri del porto di Trieste

    The research focuses on the analysis of pollutant emissions in the transportation and logistics sector, with particular reference to long supply chains, which include maritime and land transport (rail). By analyzing maritime and rail transport to and from the port of Trieste, the analysis examines a selection of routes connecting the port estimating the emissions attributed to the sea component, and the from the land side. The port of Trieste, in fact, is characterized, among Italian ports, as the main railway port, as well as the one with the highest international vocation, connecting the Far East with the markets of central and eastern Europe. In this context, an ad hoc carbon footprint estimator was developed for maritime transport, as well as a comparison between land modes, comparing different types of estimators already available online, as well as using specific simulations and methodologies. A geographical approach to the analysis is adopted in the analysis, reconstructing, from a cartographic point of view, the main routes and in making use of GIS and geovisualization platforms for analysis and representation.
