Mapping Music signifies cartographical projects on music history contextualised through cities and/or territories. Applied to cartography and musicology it allows for putting to use synergies of different disciplines (musicology, urban history, cartography, geography and computer sciences) which are oriented to reconstruction of territories as cultural identities and soundscapes. Digital cartography, based on current software and on GIS technology (Geographic information system) in particular, offers the opportunity to follow territorial environment overlaying, such as historical maps and satellite imagery. It enables musicological research to pinpoint centers of musical production in urban contexts, to improve knowledge of spaces and modalities of cultural production and to understand the interaction and the reciprocal influence between music and social events.
