Space (natural and built) as text: the semiotic approach

Event | Date: 04.12.2018

Location: Department of Humanities, Room 1

This seminar, proposed by the Design Research Lab at the University of Trento and led by Prof. Ugo Volli from the Department of Philosophy and Education Sciences at the University of Turin, aims at providing a semiotic interpretation of space, as determined and structured by a text.


Prof. Ugo Volli, University of Turin

How does a text organize the spatial dimension? How can processes of meaning pose limits on a text? The seminar will deal with these questions and others, and will be primarily aimed at transmitting the fundamental concepts and contemporary discussions within the field of semiotics to the participants.
