TitleEncyclopedic Dictionary as a Crossroad between Place Names and Antroponyms: a Project of a New Type
AbstractThe paper is devoted to the description of the encyclopedic dictionary project Florence in the Works of World Famous People: A Dictionary for Guides and Tourists supported by Italian Cultural Foundation Romualdo Del Bianco. Main steps of the dictionary making process are carefully analysed as well as mega-, macro- and microstructure of the reference book based on the Genius of the Place principle. The paper is focused on outstanding foreigners with special reference to writers, artists, musicians and other public figures who worked and lived in Florence in different historical periods since the XVth c. up to the present day that have become the object of the Dictionary. Special attention is given to dictionary microstructure including four reference sections: Biography, Creative Work, Florentine Influence, and Learn More. The model of the Dictionary is supposed to become a sample for future reference books describing famous visitors to other cultural cities: London, Moscow, Paris, Oslo, etc.
