Emanuela Casti

Emanuela Casti, PhD is Professor and Chair of Geography at the University of Bergamo in Italy as well as Chief of its Diathesis Cartographic Lab, an experimental structure integrated within international networks. Prof. Casti has been studying the semiotics of maps for nearly 30 years, culminating in the formalization of a structured semiotic theory which has been successfully applied both to real case-histories, in Europe and in Africa, and in the context of the history of cartography. Within the Diathesis Cartographic Lab, she has developed a research methodology (SIGAP Strategy) centered on the symbiosis territory/cartography. She has authored and edited several books and more than 50 journal articles on cartography and related topics. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the Italian Geographic Society (SGI). She is also member of several national associations, such as the Association of Italian Geographers (AGeI), the Italian Association of Cartography (AIC), as well as international ones, namely the International Geographic Union (UGI) and the International Cartographic Association (ICA).
