Short summary
We present a new approach in science communication that uses art, such as poetry and ancient music, to entice people to learn about landscapes. Our goal is to promote a deeper understanding of landscapes by integrating their origin and physical aesthetic with their cultural and artistic heritage. We aim to educate people to have a new perception, starting from a site's physical beauty, building on scientific study and cultural history, and arriving at the knowledge of its social importance.
