Italy is more strongly influenced by the experiences of migrants than many other European countries. This includes an historically ongoing internal migration from the south to the north, which is strongly echoed in neo-realism; a mass emigration mainly to western Europe and North and South America that is connected with mafia films, among others, in Italy's collective imaginary; as well as a more recent immigration influx from the southwestern Mediterranean, which is dealt with at a film leve...

I saggi qui raccolti hanno a che fare con l’inevitabilità del movimento che caratterizza il vivere. La vita è costantemente (in) divenire, (in) transizione, (in) cambiamento, attraversata e attraversante; pensare, allora, significa anche, e forse soprattutto, fare i conti con questo divenire. O, forse, il pensiero non solo si occupa di questo divenire, ma consiste in questo divenire. Appare così piuttosto ingenua la pretesa di voler comprendere la realtà a partire da sue ipostatizzazioni, anziché chiedere al pensiero di rendere per quanto possibile esplicito il divenire che avviene attorno e dentro ciascuno di noi, prendendo posizione, sempre in divenire, solo in conseguenza di un simile ragionamento. In tempi di crisi, come quello attuale, si assiste alla disperata ricerca di punti di riferimento duraturi, stabili, auspicabilmente immobili. Forse, invece, ogni crisi, valoriale o politico-sociale che sia, si può risolvere e prevenire solo a partire dalla considerazione che di fisso e certo, vi è solo il cambiamento.

When Mona Lisa smiled enigmatically from the cover of the Italian magazine Epoca in 1957, she gazed out at more than three million readers. As Emma Barron argues, her appearance on the cover is emblematic of the distinctive ways that high culture was integrated into Italy’s mass culture boom in the 1950s and 1960s, a period when popular appropriations of literature, fine art and music became a part of the rapidly changing modern Italian identity. Popular magazines ran weekly illustrated adaptations of literary classics. Television brought opera from the opera house into the homes of millions. Readers wrote to intellectuals and artists such as Alberto Moravia, Thomas Mann and Salvatore Quasimodo by the thousands with questions about literature and self-education. Drawing upon new archival material on the demographics of television audiences and magazine readers, this book is an engaging account of how the Italian people took possession of high culture and transformed the modern Italian identity.

Quanto più la sovranità confonde i propri tratti nel potere anonimo dei mercati finanziari, tanto più la vita di interi popoli resta non solo offesa, ma anche denudata, esposta allo sguardo pietrificante della nuova Gorgone. Un libro capace di scuotere la coscienza del lettore, spingendolo al diretto contatto con la vita offesa dei nostri giorni. Roberto Esposito, "la Repubblica" A creare il mondo pietrificato è un potere impalpabile, immateriale, astratto. Il libro di Revelli, di rara efficacia, invita a riflettere sulle caratteristiche permanenti del potere e sull'enorme difficoltà di incatenarlo con la forza del diritto. Maurizio Viroli, "il Fatto Quotidiano" C'è qualcosa di più selvatico dei mercati a briglia sciolta? Si tratta di allestire un nuovo rito sacrificale, pronto a qualsiasi saccheggio e a qualsiasi violenza, questa volta sull'altare dell'ottimizzazione delle risorse. Il bottino c'è ma non si deve vedere, la preda viene braccata ma dirlo non è chic. Bruno Accarino, "il manifesto"

Students often struggle to understand linguistic concepts through examples of language data provided in class or in texts. Presented with ambiguous information, students frequently respond that they do not 'get it'. The solution is to find an example of humour that relies on the targeted ambiguity. Once they laugh at the joke, they have tacitly understood the concept, and then it is only a matter of explaining why they found it funny. Utilizing cartoons and jokes illustrating linguistic concepts, this book makes it easy to understand these concepts, while keeping the reader's attention and interest. Organized like a course textbook in linguistics, it covers all the major topics in a typical linguistics survey course, including communication systems, phonetics and phonology, morphemes, words, phrases, sentences, language use, discourses, child language acquisition and language variation, while avoiding technical terminology.

Most of us who live in the North and the West consume far too much – too much meat, too much fat, too much sugar, too much salt. We are more likely to put on too much weight than to go hungry. We live in a society that is heading for a crash. We are aware of what is happening and yet we refuse to take it fully into account. Above all we refuse to address the issue that lies at the heart of our problems – namely, the fact that our societies are based on an economy whose only goal is growth for growth’s sake. Serge Latouche argues that we need to rethink from the very foundations the idea that our societies should be based on growth. He offers a radical alternative – a society of ‘de-growth’. De-growth is not the same thing as negative growth. We should be talking about ‘a-growth’, in the sense in which we speak of ‘a-theism’. And we do indeed have to abandon a faith or religion – that of the economy, progress and development—and reject the irrational and quasi-idolatrous cult of growth for growth’s sake. While many realize that that the never-ending pursuit of growth is incompatible with a finite planet, we have yet to come to terms with the implications of this – the need to produce less and consume less. But if we do not change course, we are heading for an ecological and human disaster. There is still time to imagine, quite calmly, a system based upon a different logic, and to plan for a ‘de-growth society’.
