Theoretical, artistic and scientific foundations

This book intends to provide an update of the knowledge acquired in the last two centuries of study of synaesthesia, from the beginning of the nineteenth century up to nowadays. It is targeted at researchers, university and music school students and to those from diverse disciplinary contexts who would like to discover the history of synaesthesia and the neuroscientific explanations or would like to experiment with the possible applications in language, arts and design. The book is the result of the international collaboration of an important group of researchers who have been participants in at least one of the conferences on Synesthesia: Science and Art (2005, 2007, 2009, 2012, 2015) organized by the International Foundation Artecittà, Politecnico di Milano, University of Granada and American Synesthesia Association (ASA).
