When Generational Media Memories Meet the Internet: The Case of Jugonostalgija on Instagram digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2019 - 2. Generations, Time, and Media
Year: 2019
Social media represent a space that allows users to collect memories and, by sharing them, to connect with those who think and feel the same about the past. In this paper we analyze the intergenerational case of Jugonostalgija on Instagram where users are rebuilding a socio-cultural yugoslav sphere in a tension among ‘culture of nostalgia’ and ‘nostalgic culture’ (Velikonja, 2008), playing different languages and aesthetics, producing content that refer to the same cultural references of the past...

Compelled To Be an Outsider: How Students on a Social Media Detox Self-construct Their Generation digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2019 - 2. Generations, Time, and Media
Year: 2019
Previous research has indicated that media technologies and media use form an important cultural glue within generations. Younger generations, in particular, have been noted to build their generational identity around the technology and devices that they use. We believe it is important to explore how generations and shared identities are constructed, especially in unusual circumstances that lead to in-depth self-reflexivity. The aim of this study was to see how the disruption of habitual social media use helps to outline the generational self-construction of young adults...

Il corpo come luogo di negoziazione di significati digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2019 - 2. Generations, Time, and Media
Year: 2019
The paper focuses on the relation between body, subject and identity in the field of performing arts (i.e. dance and theatre). The starting point of the reflection is that, despite Identity Studies (Disability Studies, Feminism Studies, Queer Studies etc.) and artistic practices which question the categories of body, health, subjectivity and identity, theater scholars are far from adopting methodological and linguistic instruments that are suitable for the interpretation of the artistic and philosophical contemporary scenario...

From Distribution to Circulation Studies: Mapping Italian Films Abroad digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2018 - 3. The international circulation of european cinema in the digital age
Year: 2018
This article begins with the observation that, in the era of media convergence and abundance, the consumption of audio-visual media occurs in such a fragmentary and ‘informal’ way that to speak simply of ‘distribution’ is no longer sufficient. Though it remains relevant – as demonstrated by the continued centrality of the box office – this term implies a vertical, closed economic process which overshadows other viewing processes (institutional and non-)...

Crossing Borders: The Circulation and Reception of Non-National European Films in Italy digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2018 - 3. The international circulation of european cinema in the digital age
Year: 2018
This article seeks to explain why some non-national European (NNE) films – i.e. films produced in one European country but released in another (e.g. a French film released in Italy) – are more successful at the Italian box office than others. Drawing on theories about the transnational circulation and reception of films and other media products, along with a range of qualitative and quantitative methods and sources, I compare the cultural and industrial characteristics of ‘successful’ NNE films (i.e. films that achieved 200,000 cinema admissions or more in Italy) with ‘unsuccessful’ NNE films released in the period 2005-15...
