format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2005 - 3. Il metodo e la passione. Cinema amatoriale e film di famiglia in Italia
Year: 2005
This paper sets home-movie making in the context of the development of tourism in Italy, particularly in the boom years of the 1950s; it reconstructs the symbolic value that public discourses of each branch assign to home-movies in this context and in that of the amateurism itself; and it deduces a semio-pragmatic definition of it, underlining the importance of these collective experiences in developing a modern tourist gaze in Italyand hence new patterns of use of audiovisual technology.

Il film di ‘back-stage’ digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2005 - 3. Il metodo e la passione. Cinema amatoriale e film di famiglia in Italia
Year: 2005
A ‘formless’ genre, which traverses the whole history of the cinema, frequently altering its appearance and functions, the ‘back-stage’ or ‘making-of’ film appears at many points of its history to converge with the immense range of amateur practices. A series of clues, relative to both the form and production strategies and to the enunciational perspective that characterize it, are in fact related to the field of those audiovisuals pro- duced and consumed within a non-professional logic and context, and where it is precisely the dimension of ‘love’, namely the dimension of the impassioned and the affective, that emerges as the driving force. The paper exemplifies the development of the genre and its frequent oscillation between amateur and profession- al approaches by means of case histories drawn from the history of the Italian cinema.

Il film di famiglia come progetto estetico del cinema italiano contemporaneo digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2005 - 3. Il metodo e la passione. Cinema amatoriale e film di famiglia in Italia
Year: 2005
From the nineties on, ‘low fidelity’methods of filming and styles inspired by family films and home movies began to make their way also into mainstream cinema. In their turn digital technologies soon replaced traditional ones in recording family and intimate memories. The old glamour of cinéma-vérité and the chance to create an aesthetic in sharp contrast with Hollywood’s prompted some art-movie makers to adopt these techniques. In Italy the issue is still open. In Italian movies, the inscription of features of home movies in filming has two aspects: 1. inscription of the technology in representation 2. stylistic mimesis. Films like Io ballo da sola by Bernardo Bertolucci, Ovosodo by Paolo Virzì and Il più bel giorno della mia vita by Cristina Comencini exemplify the first type; Scarlet Diva by Asia Argento or L’amore probabilmente by Giuseppe Bertolucci the second. In any case they still entail introducing the subjects and techniques of home movies into fictional films, conceived for cinema audiences and usable almost exclusively in art films

I ‘media sport studies’: un quadro interpretativo digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2006 - 1. Sport e media
Year: 2006
The sports in its ‘media’ dimension has only recently found a recognized significance inside social sciences, above all in the studies with relation to the dynamics between sense-building apparatus and some cultural products rooted in our contemporary society. The author, through a multidisciplinary approach, points out the main areas of study that have as their main object the sports media, and outlines an organized corpus which can be identified in media sport studies. A variegate and complex scenery emerges from this approach, leading to reflection on the necessity to observe sports as a product lying in the centre of a relation between society and the media system.

La notiziabilità del giornalismo sportivo digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2006 - 1. Sport e media
Year: 2006
Sports journalism occupies a central position in Italian information landscape. The main cause is usually attributed to the lack of two distinguished audience sectors, in Italy. One is oriented towards the elite press and the other is interested in a more popular genre. But the ability of sports to draw the public’s attention can only be explained by the fact that it has in itself two main characteristics of journalistic interest: predictability of the event and uncertainty of the result. These characteristics fit into journalistic logic that inserts the subject within an organizational rhythm in the cycle of the unexpected. Over the years sports journalism has progressively changed its narrative logic, and its means of negotiation between the producers and the protagonists of the event, through public and journalistic mediation. This essay goes through the main phases of this change, emphasizing how the criteria that make sports news particularly desirable have been clarified and have accentuated a shift from the news as a focal point to discussion as the main interest.

Sport e new media digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2006 - 1. Sport e media
Year: 2006
To talk about sports and its representation through the new media, is to principally analyze recent transformations of digital technologies. This pushes traditional media towards new forms of convergence and hybridization, thus offering new methods of fulfilment for the sports product. The author travels through historical phases that mark the relation between sports and media, in order to reach analysis of the most recent instruments of sports images transmission, from digital platforms to digital ‘portability’. This reflection moves the centre of interest from the observation of the sports product to the personalization and evolution of consumption by the public.

I diritti dello sport digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2006 - 1. Sport e media
Year: 2006
The dynamics by which the communication systems allocates sports matter are decisive in the assumption for a society in which sports has acquired a central role, and in which it has become a leading topic in the media. The result, after negotiation between sports organizations, media and society, lies in the requirement of sports to communicate a trustworthy image of itself, reliable, long-lasting, making its own strategies explicit toward goals subjected to the business communication dimension. A speculative path which keeps different key roles into account, aiming at understanding the complexity of a world that tends to dissolve itself in technological evolution, which segments the product following the tendencies of the market, but for which the promise is the right to survive as a vehicle of values.

Lo sport come officina della simultaneità radiotelevisiva digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2006 - 1. Sport e media
Year: 2006
With respect to all previous media generations, radio and then television have incorporated a contemporary rather than simultaneous culture. Simultaneously, radio and television, especially television, incorporate memories and new information. This happens in several ways: either directly, by the use of live broadcast, or in-depth sports news during special broadcasts, or as ‘phatic’ sports chatting that are the object of sports talk shows. The represented event therefore gives the spectator the impression of being in the stands rather than watching a broadcast. The key of success of sports in television broadcasting lies in the desire of the public of having a delimited field, instead of the complexity of life. The public longs for stories that end with a result and that are, at the same time, as an endless cycle, as in every television series which they are used to.

‘Media sport stars’. Fenomenologia dell’atleta mediatico digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2006 - 1. Sport e media
Year: 2006
The adaptation of sports matter to ‘media logic’ applies to sports in a broad sense and to the athlete himself, who endures in his media performance a series of transformations in comparison with the pre-mediatic athlete. The author proposes an observation path that traces one possible ‘phenomenology of the mediatic athlete’, through the observation of the construction dynamics of the sports star. Representation of a body continuously pryed by television cameras and by photographers emerges, which, continuously exposed to the view of global public, is deprived of his privacy or backstage, according to the dynamics attributed to the concept of body politics.

Venticinque anni di calcio in tv, il tempo di una generazione digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2006 - 1. Sport e media
Year: 2006
Over the last twenty-five years, the evolution of tv soccer has produced various and sophisticated levels of interpretation of the game. The analysis of the most important soccer games, through the professional outlook of the director, highlights the historical evolution and the current characters of live broadcasting of soccer, according to three levels of interpretation. The first level is represented by the collective action and individual action, without being able to be specific. The second level produces the replay that ‘explains the action’. The third level that, due to the emergence of the clip, determines some new communication strategies in line with the tendencies of contemporary television. Therefore, the current representation of sports tends to deepen the relationship between opponents and teammates, between players, referees and trainers, introducing the phase of emotional reactions between the players. It underlines, with much discretion, the personal relationship of the player during the moments of tension of the game. Much like the best reality shows.

«Quelli che il calcio» digital

How did they get the idea of talking about Italian Sunday afternoons through soccer? Soccer, a straight story with an important beginning and an end like we expect from all good stories, provides the broadcast with a plot in which it can build its main line: to interrupt that story, already interrupted by goals, with other stories that cut its vertical line horizontally. The language had to be univocal and therefore also the words could only be fragments, of soccer talk and other talk: television expects absolute coherence. The choice of the hosts, the literary contents, the musical background, the onomastic games, all elements that have contributed to the creation of a new television genre: an entertainment half between a variety show and a journalistic program, a talk show but also a reality show.
