Scandinavian Grand Tour
Il lontano Nord visto dal Sud dellEuropa

Il Sud dellEuropa ha per lungo tempo visto la Scandinavia immaginandola
come un luogo lontano ed esotico, un intreccio di miti, leggende e
stereotipi. Dal Medio Evo allepoca più recente scrittori nei loro viaggi
immaginari e viaggiatori veri come Pietro Quertini, Giuseppe Acerbi o
Umberto Nobile hanno contribuito a rafforzare il mito del lontano e
sconosciuto Nord. Questo incontro è concepito come un primo passo per
creare una piattaforma di discussione e di condivisione di studi e ricerche
sia di carattere linguistico che letterario sulla visione della Scandinavia da
parte del Sud dellEuropa.

Si invita chi voglia partecipare ad inviare una proposta di comunicazione (in
italiano o in inglese) di massimo 400 parole, indicando nome, titolo del
contributo, istituzione, indirizzo email.
Tassa partecipazione: €50 euro (studenti €20 euro)

Scandinavian Grand Tour
The far North from the South-European point of view

South-European culture has often pictured Scandinavia as an exotic place,
a mixture of myth, legend and cultural stereotypes. From the Middle Ages
and onwards many writers and travelers while exploring the far North - such
as Pietro Querini (15th century), Giuseppe Acerbi (1773-1846) or Umberto
Nobile (1885-1978) - have contributed to the strengthening of this myth in
their accounts of fantastic adventures. This workshop is planned as a first
step to create a platform for discussing and sharing examples of South-
European travel descriptions of Scandinavia, under literary and linguistic
point of view, including travel guides.

Authors are invited to submit a max 400 word abstract (in Italian or English)
by July 30, 2010, with name(s) of author(s), title of paper, affiliation, e-mail
contact information.
Conference fees: €50 euro (students €20 euro)

Inviare il proprio abstract a (entro il 30 luglio 2010)
Send the submission to (deadline July 30, 2010):
