Sociologia del leisure. Un'introduzione digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2009 - 1
Anno: 2009
In most of Western countries, leisure studies have a rather consolidated tradition. Although still considered somehow marginal, this area of study has collected a number of researches and theoretical reflections that are both quantitatively and qualitatively significant. In Italy instead, even if some studies have been conducted, especially in the last thirty years, research appears quite fragmentary. This study intends to focus either on the relevance of leisure time as an object of study for sociologists or on the results leisure studies have attained so far. In particular, looking at the current literature, I shall focus on the different meanings of leisure as well as on the sociological aspects of this important «finite province of meaning». The study ends with a reflection on the characteristics of leisure in contemporary society.

La macchia umana. Elementi per una sociologia della violenza digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2009 - 1
Anno: 2009
For many years violence was neglected by sociology. Still today there is not enough awareness of the fact that violence can be a social force. An instrumental conception of violence exists in sociology which we have inherited from the classic authors. Side by side with this we must formulate another conception which will be called modernist, according to which violence is a social force loaded with meaning and endowed with a capacity to give structure (i.e., boundaries, a hierarchy, a sense of belonging) to a group. An essential point of the study of collective violence is that these two notions have to be used together. The events we have to explain are the result of their interplay. The paper attempts: 1) to recall the instrumental notion of violence; 2) to compare the two conceptions cited above 3) to elaborate on the notion of modernist violence and its crucial elements: connection between reason and emotion, invention of an enemy, the body of the victim transformed into matter to be shaped. The paper gives a number of empirical examples such as the genocides of the second part of the twentieth century, nationalist ethnic cleansing, and mass rape in Bosnia. It also discusses violence against women in Italy from the standpoint of this new perspective.

Che cosa è una Festa. Feste di primavera in Europa (I) digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2008 - 3
Anno: 2008
Festive time has many significant meanings in European traditions: the observation of the cosmos and of cycle of human life, the need for identity and the renewal of the social pact among living individuals. Festive time is therefore a traditional institution in which the community periodically celebrates its desire of unity and happiness.

L’irresistibile ascesa di Governance. Un modello regolativo alla ricerca di una propria specificità digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2008 - 2
Anno: 2008
The term «Governance» is frequently found in speeches and texts which, under different circumstances, refer to regulatory issues of the complex contemporary society and to the increasing frequency with which it organizes itself in Network structures. Hence, there is the need to attribute this word with a conceptual and explanatory substrate, to avoid the risks of indetermination and ambiguity. Obstacles to a synthetic definition of Governance firstly stem from the varied situations in which it is applied and from the identity requests of the social actors, which are increasing in frequency. Such difficulties are intrinsic to Governance, in that it is not specific from an autonomous viewpoint. In fact, this definition is reflectively and necessarily realized with its polar equivalent, the Government. The relationship of continuously reciprocal generation between the two regulatory bodies can, thus, be defined as complementary opposition. The relation described above also depends by the intersection that it generates, applying itself to the three fundamental forms of exchange, i.e. community, market, and politics. On such bases, it is possible to propose a classification of Governance in three applicative forms: Social-Corporate- and Political-Governance. The idea of Governance and the diversified features of its three forms can be then brought back to a unifying interpretation in the more general and deep cultural realm of circularity paradigm.

Dai fatti ai «fatticci»: conoscenza scientifica e senso comune oggi digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2008 - 2
Anno: 2008
The article deals with important changes taking place in the sociology of knowledge. Classic sociology had a scientific dream, to mirror «facts». From Schuts on, social sciences focus rather on common sense than on scientific knowledge, because everyday life is considered as the starting point for every knowledge process. Anyway, it is agreed that facts are always modified by our interpretation, that is by different points of view. NSSK stresses the importance of social context in every scientific operation, both in hard and social sciences. The latter, however, through reflexivity can show how facts are constructed even in laboratories. More radically, Latour suggests the neologism «factiches» (between facts and fetiches) to indicate all human products, both material and non material, in science and everyday life, in western or other cultures. «Factiches» are constrictions, but partly transcend us and can modify us. Following Knorr Cetina, this reflexive awareness must have consequences on methodology; if researchers cannot claim to mirror the world or to give a true vision of it, they can involve their communicative context, giving voice to social actors. Objects can be promoted as subjects and interlocutors, with whom a definition of reality can be negotiated and then shared.

Suoni dell’altra musica: costruzione simbolica della tradizione, processi di socializzazione e pratiche esecutive nella musica folk digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2008 - 2
Anno: 2008
The article deals with tradition and folk music. After a preliminary close examination regarding the relationship among music, linguistic communication and rhythm, the essay shows that, in the age of globalizzation, in which the experience understood as erfharung results less and less probable and the continuous changes produce disorientation and a progressive weakening of the sense of social affiliation, the rediscovery of the tradition represents one of the sources of identification for the construction of the identity. Particularly, the values of authenticity and autonomy, attributed to traditional music, constitute the central feature of the expressive identity. Among the treated matters, particular attention is reserved to the main forms of expression of folk music as work of art. Finally, the paper investigates the modalities of socialization to instruments of folk music: the concept of social practice is used for underlining the great importance of «bodily apprehension» in the processes of acquisition of the necessary techniques to play traditional instruments.

Verso un approccio integrato allo studio delle risorse naturali comuni. Teoria dei Commons e sociologia dell’ambiente digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2008 - 2
Anno: 2008
The social consequences of the progressive degradation of common natural resources (or commons) are the focus of debate among scholars of environmental change. Towards the end of the twentieth century, two areas of research on the commons consolidated: the Theory of Common-Pool Resources and Environmental Sociology. On one hand, three decades of empirical research have revealed many rich and complicated histories of commons management. Elinor Ostrom and scholars of Indiana University have shown that the logic of commons management depends on a set of assumptions about human motivation, about the rules governing the use of the commons, about the character of the common resources and about institutional framework. On the other hand, starting from Riley Dunlap, environmental sociology has investigated the field of social impact of environmental crisis emphasizing the crucial role of the human social behaviour to response environmental problems. These two strands of research have proceeded independently of each other, but the complexity of the relationship between society and environment now requires a rapprochement. This paper provides a necessarily selective overview of this new integrated framework and examines the opportunities it offers.

La diversità nella ricerca-azione partecipata: alcune implicazioni metodologiche e procedurali digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2008 - 2
Anno: 2008
Diversity can be dealt with as to its theoretical and conceptual as well as operational definition. Some methodological and procedural remarks about diversity among people involved in participatory action research must be also pointed out. It is well known that peculiar research approach aims at modifying the observed situation, particularly through a shared knowledge production. In that perspective, some problematic key terms, such «action», «participation» and «responsibility», must be clarified and practically dealt with. This paper tries to deal with those problems and point out some ways of facing them by referring to practical experience. The main questions pointed out deal with the differences in nature and social positions of both individual and collective actors involved in an action research setting; their differences in knowledge, interests and strategies; the conceptual, physical social and symbolic ambits in which they act; the different resources, time horizons, and expectations which orientate their behaviour.
