Italian version of The World of Maps availableWe are happy to announce that the Italian translation of The World of Maps is available for download.

The World of Maps is a free e-book produced to accompany the International Map Year. The perspective of the book is to broaden the knowledge of cartography and geographic information among the general public and especially among school children.

The translation to Italian was done by Giuliano Petrarulo (a geography teacher at a high school in Milan) in collaboration with Maria Ronza (Researcher in Geography and Professor of Cartography and GIS at the University of Naples ‘Federico II). Both are members of the Associazione Italiana di Cartografia, the Italian national member of ICA.

Mille grazie, Giuliano and Maria!

More translations are under preparation and will be published within the course of the year.
