This paper aims to contribute to the geographical debate upon the role, in literature, of perception in reading space and landscapes. Here we want to investigate how the darkness, a salient element of the night, determines, in D’Annunzio’s poetics, specific readings of spaces. In particular, we want to focus on Notturno, a work written in conditions of blindness. The blindness, comparable – as indicated by the title – to the night, increases the perceptual sensitivity: this way, the spatial readings acquire, from a geographical point of view, particular interest.
