Abstract

The survey of geographical names for the Italian topographical maps of Libya produced a huge debate that interested colonialist, geographic and cartographic societies. Some Arabic language students (Nallino, Griffini) entrusted with their identification, and they based their work on the reconstruction of etymology of the names. In 1915 the rules of transcription which gave an Italian form to Libyan geographical names were sanctioned with a ministerial decree. This manipulation of names destroyed the denomination of the Libyan territory and helped to introduce values that were extraneous to African context
