The walk I propose is inspired on the romantic British poet William Wordsworth “Poems on the naming of places” 1800. Together with his sister Dorothy and his friend the poet Samuel Coleridge they started a new subjective cartography, while living in the nature in Grasmere, in the Lake District.
What we will do in our walk is to overlap a subjective toponimic system over the traditional one , in a way that a part of our feelings, lives and ideas become a part of the place and a part of the international group walk.
All walkers will have a notebook for this purpose and will select some important “sites” (rocks, paths, trees) inspiring them something from their personal lives.
After the walk we will share our subjective impressions, try to recall the places that have been relevant for the other and draw a collective map. Of course, other ways of expression as dance-movement, singing, etc. are more than wellcome.
