MAPPINESS is part of my Master Degree project:
THESIGN of HAPPINESS. HAPPINESS AND REPRESENTATION: A PARTICIPATIVE PROJECT.

this cartography summarizes the philosophical thought about happiness in western culture from ancient greeks till today and it is aimed at building a useful taxonomy to understand what is the meaning of this word.
the map is a perfect metaphor representing happiness because this feeling has always been considered a destination (it's no accident that the US Constitution talks about the "pursuit of happiness") and each one of us represents somehow the rover looking for the place where this treasure is hidden.
