albero-Ma qual è la pietra che sostiene il ponte? chiede Kublai Kan.
-Il ponte non è sostenuto da questa o quella pietra, risponde Marco,
-ma dalla linea dell’arco che esse formano.
Kublai Kan rimane silenzioso, riflettendo.
Poi soggiunge: -Perché mi parli delle pietre?
È solo dell’arco che mi importa.
Polo risponde: -Senza pietre non c’è arco.

Italo Calvino, Le città invisibili

Why Italian Routes

Playing on the English pronunciation of the words routes and roots we wanted to highlight the two-sided nature of languages. We believe in Gramsci’ s definition: “language is a continuous process of metaphor…[…] it is at the same time a living thing and a museum of fossils of life and civilisations.”

Therefore, on one hand it is strongly rooted in century of history and places, and on the other hand it is in a continuous process of transformation.

Italian Routes aims to promote language services which offer different ways to understand and investigate the geography, the politics, the philosophy and the history.
