Abstract

The main objective of this research is to experiment; through methods of infographic representation, the informational complexity concerning the abandonment phenomenon of small centers in Abruzzo. For years, Abruzzo’s interior areas have been involved in a slow and unstoppable depopulation phenomenon that has undergone a violent acceleration since the earthquake of 2009. We feel the urgent need to document this important heritage since we recognize to it the fundamental task of defending local identity. The infographic representation of small centers allows us to highlight characteristics and stories of these places remained on the periphery of the transformations imposed by modernity.
