Media, Creative Industries and Crisis in Italy. Cycles and Anticycles between Society and Communication

04.10.2017
The special issue addresses the development of the media system and creative industries in relation both to the major economic crises and to the role played by innovation in making the media – with respect to the crisis itself – assume a cyclical or anti-cyclical role.

Starting from the conference, devoted to “Italian Society and the Great Economic Crises 1929-2016” and held by ISTAT (Italian National Institute of Statistics) in Rome on 25-26 November 2016, the essays collected here, addresses the ways in which economic and social crisis of the past (1929, the 70s etc.) and media in their history are set in relation to crises (specific attention is given to the last post-2008 global crises). However the special issue aims to expand this framework providing the basis for a new periodization of the national media system.

The emerging picture illustrates how the Italian media, following the 60s economic boom, have faced for the last forty years a time of uninterrupted crisis. In this wide time span, the crisis has sometimes functioned as a depressive element on the media system, and sometimes as a promoter of systemic innovation, favouring the rise of new content and forms of consumer options (for instance with the explosion of private broadcasting, or the advent of the social media, and the birth of connective media).

The special issue addresses the development of the media system and creative industries in relation both to the major economic crises and to the role played by innovation in making the media – with respect to the crisis itself – assume a cyclical or anti-cyclical role. Starting from the conference, devoted to “Italian Society and the Great Economic Crises 1929-2016” and held by ISTAT (Italian National Institute of Statistics) in Rome on 25-26 November 2016, the essays collected here addresses the ways in which economic and social crisis of the past (1929, the 70s etc.) and media in their history are set in relation to crises (specific attention is given to the last post-2008 global crises). However the special issue aims to expand this framework providing the basis for a new periodization of the national media system. The emerging picture illustrates how the Italian media, following the 60s economic boom, have faced for the last forty years a time of uninterrupted crisis. In this wide time span, the crisis has sometimes functioned as a depressive element on the media system, and sometimes as a promoter of systemic innovation, favouring the rise of new content and forms of consumer options (for instance with the explosion of private broadcasting, or the advent of the social media, and the birth of connective media). Questo monografico affronta lo sviluppo del sistema dei media e delle industrie creative in relazione sia alle principali crisi economiche che al ruolo svolto dall'innovazione nel far sì che i media assumano un ruolo ciclico o anticiclico rispetto alla crisi stessa.
