XVIII CENTURY MAP
Based on the geographical knowledge of the period between XVII and XVIII century, this map shows the work of Dutch cartographies of the century; in order to sketch naval courses, oceans and continents, they tapped into the travel journals of great transoceanic navigators, such as Barents, Le Maire, Tasman e Roggveen. Other cartographic contribution from the same age, but with different origin, allowed to add to the illustration remote and cartographically unclear lands such as a part of Tartary, the subpolar area of North America and the eastern Australian shores, but left a vague layer corresponding the Arctic and Antarctic “terra incognita”. It was kept the prevalence of Latin toponymy that corresponds to the universal language used for cartography. The images represent the ornamental and mythological motives of the time. The vessels are the copy of those that, after thousand years of scientific denial, proved the roundness of the world and led to the rescue of that geographical three-dimensionality that only the globe can offer to men’s eyes.
