Supporting individuals who lack experience or competence to evaluate an overwhelming amout of information such as from cultural, scientific and educational content makes recommender system invaluable to cope with the information overload problem. However, even recommended information scales up and users still need to consider large number of items. Visualization takes a foreground role, letting the user explore possibly interesting results. It leverages the high bandwidth of the human visual system to convey massive amounts of information. This paper argues the need to automate the creation of visualizations for unstructured data adapting it to the user's preferences. We describe a prototype solution, taking a radical approach considering both grounded visual perception guidelines and personalized recommendations to suggest the proper visualization.
