Berlusconi’s television, before and after. The 1980s, innovation and conservation digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2013 - 1. Moving at different speeds. The commercialization of television systems in Europe and its consequences
Year: 2013
SUMMARY During the Eighties, commercial television has been a driver of deep innovation into the Italian media system, mainly thanks to the complex figure of media entrepreneur (and then tycoon) Silvio Berlusconi. However, a closer analysis show how, after a short “rupture phase” necessary to enter a new market and conquer the TV audience, with originality and a strong conflict with PSB, often the new Fininvest commercial channels started to more easily adapt to their competition’s common routines, thus becoming a conservative force using its new power to reinforce the system’s stability. The essay shows, following the case histories of commercial TV news, scheduling and financing, how this dynamics of innovation and conservation have been carefully implemented and defended since the beginning of Silvio Berlusconi’s media activity. RIASSUNTO Negli anni Ottanta, la tv commerciale è stata un elemento di profonda innovazione nel sistema dei media italiano, principalmente grazie alla complessa figura dell’imprenditore (e poi media tycoon) Silvio Berlusconi. Una più attenta analisi, però, mostra come, dopo una breve fase “di rottura” necessaria a entrare in un nuovo mercato e a conquistare l’audience televisiva, con elementi di originalità e un forte conflitto con il servizio pubblico, spesso i nuovi canali commerciali Fininvest cominciarono ad adattarsi in modo più piano alle routine più comuni dei loro competitor, diventando una forza conservatrice che usa il suo nuovo potere per rafforzare la stabilità del sistema. Il saggio mostra, seguendo i casi di studio dell’informazione televisiva commerciale, della programmazione e delle forme di finanziamento, come questa dinamica di innovazione e conservazione è stata attentamente perseguita e difesa fin dalle prime battute delle attività di Silvio Berlusconi.

Lost in Translation, e oltre. Il complesso adattamento del mondo possibile dei paratesti di Lost per lo spettatore italiano digital
format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2009 - 1. Arredo di serie. I mondi possibili della serialità televisiva americana
Year: 2009
In times of aesthetic and cultural convergence, in the countries of origin, and especially in the USA, more and more serials are accompanied by ancillary texts (short films, novels, summaries, videogames), enriching and ‘decorating’ the hypothetical world staged by serials. The essay analyzes the strategies and tactics used by the Italian television networks (or by more or less organized fan groups) to translate or adapt also in Italy this rich quantity of para-texts. Analyzing the serial Lost in its details and declinations, the work tries to outline a double typology. First it goes back over the TV film extensions according to their function: from the instruments helping to orientate in the serial world, to the narration continuation in other media, and to the forms allowing playing with settings and personages. Secondly, it assesses the translation options chosen (and hypothetical) for each paratext: from the realization of an Italian edition, to the translation choices of the organized fandom; from the impossibility to translate effectively to the re-creation of similar texts, customized for the Italian audience. The Italian experience of the text – or better, of the texts composing the story and the hypothetical world – will be inevitably different from the ‘original’ one.
