AbstractPrinting techniques of the nineteenth century allow a new, widespread and affordable distribution to ‘educational propaganda’ publications and its related information. Among these, the communications of landscape is offered with the visual storytelling that combines texts and pictures inside Le Cento Città d’Italia, by Sonzogno publishing house. In this collection, the use of image become a fundamental support for the reader’s mental representation, while facilitating the transition from imagination to imagine, from narrated to represented. There can be found different interpretation and description of 'landscape': the panorama, now extricated from the eighteenth century cylindrical representation, the urban landscape and the panoramic view, with improper synonymy sometime defined landscape. They conclude with the socio-political one, defined from editorial choices aimed at enhancing awareness of, at that time, Italy ‘under construction’.
