Mediating Italy in Global Culture

The third edition of “Mediating Italy in Global Culture” offers an intensive learning experience where graduate and post-graduate students can consolidate their theoretical and methodological skills on the forms of production, distribution, circulation, and reception contributing to the “mediation” of the Italian audiovisual culture in the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, and other national contexts. Specifically, the Summer School will address the forms of media representations associated with Italy, as well as their manipulation by cultural industries, fandoms, and opinion leaders. Furthermore, the program will focus on the complex imageries and socio-cultural constructions of the brand “Made in Italy” spread by film, television and digital media, as well as by other cultural and creative industries as design, fashion, sports and food. In particular, light will be shed on the crucial framing role played by foreign countries in the popularization of Italy’s depictions around the world.
