Sicurezza alimentare e comunicazione del rischio: il caso Aviaria digital
The contemporary society is countersigned by a progressive substitution of the concept of fear by that of risk, which contemplates the rational possibility of control on the dangerousness of a given phenomenon by the individual and the system. The article starts from the terminological and conceptual distinction between risk and danger, and indicates then two types of communication: the communication of crisis and the communication of the risk. On this last one strongly weighs the communicative intervention of the media. The probability of risk varies as the system ability to know how to react to the emergency situations varies, and not simply with the possibility in itself that the event happens: according to this approach it is therefore necessary to elaborate tools to prevent and check the risks, through the management of the system efficiency, regularizing the information flows among the subjects composing the communicative chain of risk and emergency: institutions, media and citizens. The analysis of a particular case (the diffusion of H5N1 virus – generally known as being responsible for the «avian influence» – in the period included between August 2005 and March 2006, in the informative coverage operated by the «Corriere della Sera» and by the Tg1) allows identifying some problems of risk communication by the Institutions and to verify their consequences in food consumption in Italy. It emerges that the media discourses are very powerful in creating awareness of the danger, but they are contradictory in creating a correct perception of the risk; secondly, the media discourses seem to be weak in driving the consumers’ behaviour: the population manifests a certain distrust towards the evaluation of the risk operated by «expert systems», deciding alone the purchasing behaviour to be adopted. The last part of the article describes a best practice: the planning and realization of a food safety manual edited by an Italian Ministry, starting from the awareness acquired during the avian emergency.
Divertirsi da morire: la rappresentazione mediale di Internet sulla stampa italiana (2007-2008) digital
The investigation here proposed takes into examination the «Corriere della Sera» and the daily paper free press «Metro» for a three-months’ period. The times when Internet was a new technology, to be explained, are over. The question now is, what are today in Italy the social discourses on the net. The representation of Internet appears today pulverized in the routine discourses of the media, on one side given for granted inside the more general talks on the media system, on the other side keeping a dimension of ‘novelty’ that guarantees the its being part of the news. The central knots around which the discourses on the net are condensed are: 1) Internet as a tecno-economic element, 2) as a dangerous place, 3) as an arena of fun and diversion. Vice versa, in contrast with the emancipative rhetoric still permeating other social discourses on the net, the debate on themes such as the social share and politics through Internet, the access and the use of the computer resources, the governance of the tool are almost entirely missing.
L’ “autonomia dipendente”: la rappresentazione dell’iPod digital
The article examines the ‘iPod case’, in its structural particularity inside the market of the new communication technologies. What characterized this device – within the paradigm of mobility – is the particular dependence from network and PC. The hypothesis of the author is that not only music is permeated by dialectics between extreme personalization and desire of community (and communication), but also the management of the meanings associated to iPod device is conditioned by this bipolar system. This is particularly evident in the link between iPod and iTunes software, from the specific point of view of contents. We are assisting here to two contrasting phenomena: from one side iPod tends to become more and more capacious and ‘independent’ from a point of view of digital memory, from the other side Apples promotes and follows a policy of gradual release of contents through iTunes MS, which stimulates a continuous dependence from the web. Actually, we still have to underline the duplicity of the iTunes MS phenomenon,: from one side the shop is a place where one can buy ‘already known’ music, but on the other side it works as a top-down information place (a sort of news window) and mainly as a place for the diffusion of underground and indie contents. In iTunes MS there are both typical tendencies of a commercial reality and phenomena, which are more similar to the creation of an Internet community. IPod value is in its being a cult object allowing a synthesis between the will to a tendency to freedom, to the independence of choice of the single persons, though linking them to the network society of shared contents, and the community of values and distinctions of who is a part (or wants to be part) of the iPod generation (and of the podcasting-generation).
