PALERMO, 09 JUL – “Rhetoric at newsstands: the journalistic discourse” is the title of the cycle of seminars of the first summer school of semiotic methodology dedicated to the scholar Paolo Fabbri, who died in 2020 and promoted by the Sicilian semiological circle, directed by Gianfranco Marrone, full professor at the University of Palermo.
The school, led by Alice Giannitrapani, will take place in Erice from 11 to 15 July next: a week during which lessons, analysis laboratories and evening conferences will be held open to Italian and international post-graduate and doctoral students.
The aim of the initiative is to relaunch semiotics as an interpretative language for understanding current events and reading events.
Each day will be dedicated to multiple themes such as the narrative construction of events or the communication strategies used to spread the news.
In the medieval village of Erice, among the historic buildings, places of worship and the path dedicated to Sicilian wines, the interventions of semiologists will be held alternating with those of journalists and experts in the field who will give their contribution in relation to their direct experience, including these Francesco Giorgino of Tg1 and Stefano Bartezzaghi of the Iulm University of Milan.
To open each day will be a collective press review, followed by the seminars of the teachers, including “The semantic articulation in relation to narrative models” by Maria Pia Pozzato of the University of Bologna, “Informing, making known, manipulating: which borders?” by Anna Maria Lorusso of the University of Bologna, “Memories of the pandemic: the serial story of information” by Cristiana Demaria of the University of Bologna, “Passionate devices” by Isabella Pezzini of the Sapienza University of Rome, “War images / war of the images “by Tarcisio Lancioni of the University of Siena and” Translating reality.
Printed paper and beyond “by Franciscu Sedda of the University of Cagliari.
10 scholarships will also be announced for all participants to cover room and board.
“Paolo Fabbri has followed the fate of the science of signs since its inception – explains Marrone – since the mid-seventies he held seminars on media, television and advertising in Florence but also courses on sociolinguists, following the lessons of Barthes and soon becoming the main collaborator of what was his only true teacher: the brilliant Lithuanian French semiologist Algirdas-Julien Greimas “.
