Una comunità greca e un Ecce Homo (“alla greca”) ad Avellino. Il mistero di un’immagine pittorica, tra scienza e fede

Riccardo Sica
The paper focuses on the complex interpretative question of an unusual medieval fresco, perhaps a unique example in the history of western art, located in a room of the surviving structure of the Church of S.Paolo in Avellino, near the Castle. It is almost certainly an Ecce Homo!, made no later than the twelfth century. According to characteristic Turkish hairstyle, singular Byzantine style aspects, and for certain unpublished iconographic aspects, it reveals the original, very...

Figure dell’abiezione. corpi che contano nel teatro di Annibale Ruccello

Emanuele Broccio
This study offers an analysis of the play The Five Roses of Jennifer(1980) by Annibale Ruccellofrom a gender studies perspective. Recognised as the moment of affirmation of the author's dramaturgical originality, this play has been at the centre of debate not only for its peculiar relationship with Neapolitan theatrical tradition, but also for the intertextual references to the English stage production. Within this debate, Jennifer and her story have been interpreted, from time to time,...

Matteo Sommella
The present paper, after an overview of the main provisions of the PIF Directive and some European Union bodies involved in its implementation, focuses on the issue of corporate liability arising from tax crimes. On this point, the Italian legislator, having missed the deadline for transposition of the mentioned directive, used a decree law, even in the absence of the requirements of necessity and urgency, to make tax crimes a prerequisite of the corporate liability....

Signs in indigenous tales: a semiotic analysis

Segun Omosule
Translation and interpretation may be all that are needed to break the bulwark surrounding meanings of folktales in some remote cultures. Using a combination of Peircean’s semiotic objects, representamen and interpretant; Henrik Gottlieb’s«semiotically based taxonomy of translation» finding expression in the concept of time and space, the paper progresses from intra semiotic translation which involves translation within«sign system» to«inter semiotic translation» which is«translation between sign systems» to unravel the wealth of meaning in the Ifa...

Benin video-films as archival sources of history

Osakue S. Omoera
This article dialectically considers how Benn video-films serve as archival sources of history in Nigeria. It uses historical, sociological and formalistic methods to interpret and interrogate some Benin video-films with a view to highlight how they serve as potent repositories of cultural history. Nigerian movies are increasingly being shot directly via digital cameras. This historically brought about Nollywood, which is now booming. McCall claims that Nollywood has become a primary catalyst in an emergent continent-wide...

Societal Vulnerability and Resilience in the COVID-19 Crisis

Bruno De Marchi
Despite the possibility of a pandemic had been seriously considered in professional circles, most governments were taken by surprise by the rapid diffusion of the SARS CoV-2, from first reports in China (December 2019) to the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic by the WHO (11th March 2020). The same was true for the majority of citizens, unfamiliar with the word pandemic and its meaning. The nightmare scenario of a collapse of the health services and...

Epistemologie della sostenibilità: ragionamenti e politiche non standard

Elena Gagliasso & Sara Campanella
Sustainability perspectives require non-standard scientific and political reasoning, now more than ever. The lexicons of ecology and political economy articulate epistemic catego-ries and imaginaries in which humans and environments are in mutual relationship avoiding an exploitation logic of the former. We support these scenarios allow to grasp the disconti-nuities between the past and the present of the environmental movements, between the scientific ideals of modernity and the contemporary ones. The need to connect two oppos-ing...

Cultura, Mutamento e Sviluppo nell’Agenda ONU 2030 per lo sviluppo sostenibile

Rosanna Memoli
A glance at the past has revealed that in the years of reconstruction after the Second World War a different distribution of resources, technological know-how caused a gap between developed and underdeveloped countries, generating rebellions and conflicts. Forecast studies, (Future Studies) and Global Planning showed that the risks of a progressive slowdown in development were largely due to the ecological limits imposed by the world’s finite resources and the inability of the biosphere to absorb...

COVID-19 in China. The Great Wall of Technology

Emanuele Gatti & Nicola Strizzolo
China is the first country to have faced an extensive contagion of Covid-19. The response it has given, in terms of prevention and control measures, has been effective in eradicating the virus, even though not completely. Those measures were based on an extensive and widespread use of technologies. The strategies adopted were not the result of improvisation: the social, cultural and technological structures were already in place well before the epidemic took place. In light...

Sexuality at the Time of Coronavirus in Italy: A (Technological) Retreat in Itself?

Costantino Cipolla
Our contribution aims at unravelling the knot between sexuality and the web in Italy during the coronavirus pandemic. Sex-related online practices intensified, due to health concerns and lockdown measures, and access to pornographic websites skyrocketed. What is the cul-tural, relational, and psychological impact of this? We identify two main outcomes: wide-spread solipsism and dissolution by excess. It is, to the best of our knowledge, an unex-plored territory. Sociologists did not address previous pandemics, nor have...

Everyday Life “Turned upside Down”: Disasters, Future and Resilience

Emiliana Mangone & Nikolay Zyuzev
Disasters change individuals and the social structure. Two categories are essential to study disasters: time and space. To these, we should add risk that is a cultural object resulting from interpretation. Its representations are subjective and they stem from the socio-cultural framework of reference. In the article, we will apply to the COVID-19 epidemic in Italy the four risk-related issues emerging by the interplay between the degree of knowledge (certain/uncertain) and that of consent (contested/complete)...
