Albert Camus e il teatro di un uomo in rivolta digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI | Online First
Year: 2019
In this paper we shall look Camus’ last text on dramatic art in order to introduce his most general thought about the deep and problematic relationship that exists between theatre, life and political action. Perché faccio teatro? [«Why do I deal with theatre?») is a speech that Camus prepared for a television broadcast transmitted on May 12 1959: the author not only explained where his profound passion for drama came from, but also explicitly answered critics who had accused him of backing out of his role of intellectual, due to his increasingly intensive engagement on the Parisian stages...

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...

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-)...

National Screen Productions and Global SVOD Services: The Case of Netflix in the UK and Italy digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2018 - 3. The international circulation of european cinema in the digital age
Year: 2018
The purpose of this article is to analyse the role played by the category of ‘nationality’ in global SVOD (Subscription video on demand) services by looking at Netflix and its presence in the European context, with a focus on two key audio-visual markets such as the British and Italian ones. We argue that the persistence of the concept of ‘nationality’ on streaming services, albeit arguably marginal, suggests a new understanding of its function within contemporary media conglomerates...

Year: 2018
Blockchain technology has gained significant popularity socially in recent years. Bitcoin is its most popular implementation, mainly due to economic interests, though there is much more to blockchain than cryptocurrencies. One could argue that a primary purpose of this technology is to create a fair economic future, though more practically it could also be used to promote and distribute heavy files, such as films...

Year: 2018
On January 18th, a shooting occurred in an upper middle class private school in the city of Monterrey, Mexico, by a 15 year old student of that institution. As soon as the news coverage started, it reported contradictory data mixing both formal and informal sources. The purpose of this article is to show the evolution of this coverage through the spatial frames given to the event during the first week after the incident, and reflect over the vulnerability that each frame has in making mistakes...

Pubblicità e rappresentazione femminile: tra vecchi e nuovi stereotipi digital

Year: 2018
In our country the conditions for women have radically changed over time thanks to a number of important achievements. However, several discriminatory factors still exist, such as the multiple roles (wife, mother, employee) that women must carry out, or salary gaps between men and women. On top of this we can add the persistent attitude the media takes in defining and assessing the value of a women...

Mapping the Impact of ISIS Propaganda Narratives: Evidences from a Qualitative Analysis in Italy and France digital

Year: 2018
The increasingly worsening threat posed by terrorism in Europe has led the media to focus their attention on the issue of violent radicalisation. Although this phenomenon includes different forms of violent extremism – from extreme right-wing movements to catholic movements, eco-terrorists, etc. – today the question of violent radicalisation is mainly related to Jihadism, and ISIS is the most recent and, from the perspective of its media use, intriguing expression...
