Geography educates to place itself in a relational space where every single path is part of interactions between natural, socio-cultural, economic and political systems. The spatial dimension must be interpreted as a cultural mediator able to orient ourselves in the development of relations with the environment, the territory and societies. The course is divided into two parts: Geography of Italy and Europe and Geography Education.
The main purpose is to make the student understand that geography is:
- the discipline that studies the relationships between man and the environment and their evolution over time,
- it is not merely descriptive, but explanatory and interpretative,
- is critical knowledge of reality and study of territorial problems and possible solutions.
Please refer to the details of the two parts: Geography of Italy and Europe and Geography Education
