This work has been envisaged as a contribution with several viewpoints coming from different scientific and disciplinary sectors, able to underline the potentialities of geographical perspectives in an interdisciplinary key, both in research and didactics. These considerations are set out starting from the inputs provided by J-READING in its ten years of publications, contextualizing them in a wider framework of discussion. In particular the attention is focussed in terms of interactions with: hygiene, public health and challenges for social utility; volcanic and natural risks and the active involvement of the population; GIS models and applied research and didactics.
