In the last few years the spread of audiovisual productions with diverse links to the world of fashion has grown consistently, in particular regarding the dissemination of a phenomenon known as the Fashion Film (FF). From the point of view of the language being used, the FF shows clear elements deriving from pre-existing audiovisual forms, including the short-feature film, commercial, music video and art film...

By continuously integrating the latest new-media advances while still predominantly relying on older broadcast models, contemporary mediated sport affords an interesting paradox. That is, while most well-known sports provide “digitized” processes, platforms and applications, these technologies primarily complement the televised coverage. Thus, despite assumptions of a decline in broadcast media, the televisual representation of sport often remains paramount in terms of viewership, circulation (or its online replication) and broadcasting rights. This is especially true for “mega” sporting events that generate widespread interest and often attract large, diverse audiences to their live global telecasts outside of normal viewing hours. My article considers these contemporary trends through a specific examination of the 2015 Cricket World Cup (CWC) and its global televised representations.

Although cinema is routinely classified as a creative industry in the twenty-first century, countering its designation as a “business, pure and simple” at the beginning of the twentieth, Hollywood productions are increasingly determined by the commercial imperatives of the conglomerates and the domination of young males as the most profitable audience within this sector...

In the course of the 1990s, the academic reflection on the communication mediated by the computer has substantially set the theme of sociability and of the relations in the network in terms of community: it is the theme of virtual community, a theme which is strongly marked by a techno-utopic ideology. In the first place, this article covers the history of Internet Studies, in an attempt to identify the detailed rules and guidelines which determined the centrality of the subject of virtual community, indicating among these, in particular, the implicit space metaphor with which the researchers thought about the network in the course of the 1990s. Secondly, it shows how, despite the crisis of the paradigm centered on this metaphor, and despite several attempts, the Community approach has not been entirely abandoned. The virtual community continues to build, often in an implicit way, a model in the light of which we can read – and assess – the forms of social life, and the relations taking life, even through the network, with the risk of not to seizing the specificity and the complexity of new emerging events.

La Dtt e l’esperienza interattiva digital
format: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2008 - 1. Incipit digitale. L'avvio della televisione digitale terrestre in Italia tra discorsi, prodotti e consumi | anno: 2008 | numero: 1

The interactive experience is a kind of meta-experience or multiple experiences: it implies that the viewer not only perceives the text, but interacts with it; he is involved in doing, in involving previous, present knowledge and competence, whether media or extra-media related. It is the place in which, even before the medium text, the viewer himself must guarantee a ‘return path’, an active, not a passive dimension of experience. For this reason interactivity has been put at the center of the media and social discourses on Dtt. The essay gives the results of the analysis of the content and organization of the products offered by Dtt program schedules in the years 2005 and 2006, focalizing its attention on the interactive experience. It is a socio-semiotic analysis of the text within its socio-cultural context, which allowed understanding what the Dtt text inherited from the previous television. The analysis also allowed understanding how it translates the user’s knowledge and competences about the technological means within the new media environment. The analysis of the interactivity forms offered by Dtt was carried out on three main interpretation axis: the typology of the interactive service (allowing the distinction of Enhanced TV; Magazine/Portal TV; TGovernment and T-Business models); the content of the information conveyed by the interactive service (distinguished between the peculiarity of the television medium or of the media and extra-media external system); the user’s permanence or leave with respect to the television medium (in which can be distinguished permanent interactive forms within the ‘closed’ Dtt system and forms of leave from the system toward the real world). The scenery emerging is characterized by a lack (or scarcity) of peculiarity of the medium; by an interactivity which seems to follow extra or old-television models and finds it difficult to create new ones; by the coexistence of numerous models which are different from each other but not necessarily alternative. The evolution opportunities are: the definition of a peculiar model of the medium, expressing characteristics of difference with respect to the existing television systems (analogical via ether and satellite digital); or the creation of a permanent koiné, in which the hybridization of the models and their coexistence increases service complexity (articulated and recognizable on the basis of ever different relevance criteria), with respect to its homogeneity.

Rootcasting. I discorsi in rete sulle pratiche di condivisione dal basso digital
format: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2008 - 3. Il dito e la luna. Rappresentazioni mediali e costruzione sociale della realtà | anno: 2008 | numero: 3
Year: 2008
The article proposes a research on the network places in which the discourse related to the passage of video and audio contents develops through various platforms and formats. The research concentrates on the typology of discourses and practices, on the places of exchange of information and products, on the typology of the involved subjects and their functions, on the finality of this exchange. The emerging scenery – even if not really exhaustive – finds out a strong complexity, which seems to follow the ‘RootCasting’ logics, a spontaneous but organic mechanism of various practices which activate distribution and consumption modalities which are peculiar, alternative to the ‘circular emission’ or Broadcasting. Within this paradigm, it is possible to recognize some central knot: the first concerns the fact that the discourse orientates where there is more necessity to understand and learn: the information flows among the subjects to transmit more consumption forms, the way to realize them and the materials to be consumed (download how to do it, what to download). The second is related to the extraordinary vitality of communities, whose practices can be reduced to the ‘exchange’ which is an end in itself.

Variazioni di mondo. Esercizi di stile seriale nel telefilm contemporaneo digital
format: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2009 - 1. Arredo di serie. I mondi possibili della serialità televisiva americana | anno: 2009 | numero: 1
Year: 2009
The link between standardization and variation is that of the fundamental functioning mechanisms of serials. Analyzing the historical development of American TV series, we can notice how it finds a codified and steady balance in the forms of series (drama, and comedy) and of serial (soap opera and prime-time soap). This concretely results in the building of a recurrent world, immediately recognizable, characterized by representative and narrative constants. The advent of new text forms, such as the serialized series, linked to the second golden age, and become a mainstream in the last decade, brings forth the use of variation as a tool for a deeper and very close communication relation between implicit author and model spectator. The essay hypotheses that the most frequent form of variation in contemporary American serial TV could be defined «world variation »: a highly reflexive style exercise, made on the momentarily transformation of the diegetic universe of the series. The essay hypotheses therefore a first attempt of «world variation» typology, starting from some special episodes from contemporary series: Buffy, Lost, The Simpsons, Scrubs, indicating some more research paths in the text analysis, but also in the study of production (the emerging figure of the author-creator as origin/ source of the «world variation») and consumption (the fandom audience as privileged addressee of the style exercises linked to the variations).

RÉSUMÉ Cet article vise à étudier la nature d’un objet social complexe: un plan basé sur le Web produite ces derniers mois afin de suivre l’évolution d’une maladie infectieuse, connue sous le nom de grippe porcine. Le circuit des signes et des événements que la carte a dessiné, le cycle de contacts web générés par la peur de la contagion, les modes des discours, sont à l’étude comme processus et discours, pratique scientifique et trace de socialisation, émersion d’une documentation faite d’intentions et de réactions, de questions et de résultats. D’intention qui nous tracent et de traces que nous suivons comme des panneaux de signalisation. De scènes où la vraie carte est nourrie et nourrit à son tour, l’imaginaire que techno science, cinéma, science-fiction ont produit pour nous, s’imposant comme mode d’emploi du monde. SUMMARY This essay aims at investigating the nature of a complex object: a web-based map produced in recent months in order to trace the evolution of an infectious disease, known as swine flu. The circuit of signs and events that the map has drawn, the cycle of web contacts generated by the fear of contagion, the patterns of the discourse, are being investigated as a process and discourse, scientific practice and traces of socialization, the emerging of a documents made of intentions and feedbacks, of queries and results. It is made of intents that characterize us and of traces that we follow as traffic signs. Scenes of reality in which the map is fed and feeds, in turn, imaginary that techno-science, movies, science fiction have produced for us, establishing themselves as the world operating instructions.

Of the Impossible Possibility. «Sinfonia per corpi soli»: 12+10 Portraits of Women between Words and Music digital
format: Articolo | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2012 - 1. Il teatro al femminile: declinazioni e intersezioni di due differenze | anno: 2012 | numero: 1

RIASSUNTO All’interno di un più ampio campo d’interesse, più esattamente sulle tracce dell’opera di due grandi maestri del Novecento, Jacques Derrida e Gilles Deleuze, come ben evidenzia Jean-Luc Nancy, pensare la singolarità e la differenza appare essere il compito filosofico del nostro tempo. E si tratta di un cammino che privilegia la scrittura, intesa nelle sue più articolate accezioni, con specifica attenzione, in questo caso, all’arte della scena. In tale linea di pensiero, con riferimento al tema della differenza, inevitabilmente si produce uno scarto fra lo «zampillamento di senso» (da un lato) e la «sua promessa destinata a non essere mantenuta» (dall’altro lato). Così, in questa prospettiva, la definizione di Stéphane Mallarmé dell’essenza della scrittura come «possibilità impossibile» acquista una particolare rilevanza. Allo stesso tempo sintetizza perfettamente la sfida di un interessante e innovativo progetto teatrale: Sinfonia per corpi soli. Ritratti di donne fra parole e musica, nelle sue due stagioni al Teatro Eliseo di Roma (2005/2006 e 2006/2007), con la direzione artistica di Antonio Calbi. La formula, in apparenza semplice, è in realtà estremamente ricca di contenuti, implicazioni, suggestioni: attrici molto affermate e giovani emergenti salgono sulla scena per raccontare altre donne attraverso i ritratti, le narrazioni, le analisi che ne hanno fatto importanti autrici del Novecento, compiendo un viaggio d’introspezione in tante diverse ‘stanze’ immergendosi nelle drammaturgie, negli universi letterari, nelle ossessioni delle autrici per, poi, condividere con il pubblico questa loro esperienza. In Sinfonia per corpi soli c’è tutta la passione di questa ricerca filosofica e artistica, nella quale la dimensione della fisicità riveste un ruolo centrale, precisamente nel corpo a corpo attrice/autrice. L’iniziativa affascinante, sotto certi aspetti per manifesta volontà destabilizzante ossia ‘non ortodossa’ rispetto alle sole tecniche del mestiere teatrale, punta a valorizzare la dialettica fra parola scritta e parola teatrale, spingendosi, senza alcun timore, ai limiti, sui margini, oltre le soglie, fra le scritture dell’estremo, nella radicalità e drammaticità della domanda sul senso dell’esistere. Con una riscoperta, la vocazione del teatro civile, ripensata sulla nuova scena urbana, e ascoltata nel respiro di una voce visibile. SUMMARY Within a broader field of interest, in the footsteps of the work of two great masters of the twentieth century, Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuze, as Jean-Luc Nancy rightly observes, thinking about singularity and difference appears to be the philosophical task of our time. It is a path that privileges writing, understood in its most articulate acceptations, with a specific concern in this case with the art of the stage. Following out this line of thought, with reference to the theme of difference, inevitably produces a gap between the «spurting of meaning» (on the one hand) and «its promise destined not to be kept» (on the other). So seen in this perspective, Stéphane Mallarmé’s definition of the essence of writing as «impossible possibility» is of particular relevance. At the same time it perfectly sums up the challenge of an exciting and innovative theatre project: Sinfonia per corpi soli. Ritratti di donne fra parole e musica, in its two seasons at the Teatro Eliseo in Rome (2005/2006 and 2006/2007), under the artistic direction of Antonio Calbi. The formula, apparently simple, is actually very rich in its contents, implications and associations. The actresses, including established performers and emerging talents, take the stage to recount other women through portraits, stories and analyses by important twentieth-century women writers, making a journey of self-examination divided into many different «rooms», immersing themselves in the dramaturgies, literary universes and obsessions of the authors, and then sharing their experience with the public. Sinfonia per corpi soli embodies all the passion of this philosophical and artistic research, in which the dimension of physicality plays a central role, specifically in the struggle between actress and author. The fascinating initiative, in some respects deliberately destabilizing or ‘unorthodox’ compared to the techniques of the theatrical profession, seeks to enhance the dialectic between written speech and theatrical speech, pushing fearlessly at the limits and margins beyond the threshold, between writings of the extreme, in the radicalism and drama of the demand on the sense of existence. With a rediscovery of the vocation of the civic theatre, rethought on the new urban scene and heard in the breathing of a visible voice.
