Il racconto del corpo: il tatuaggio tra autobiografia e narrazione collettiva digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2006 - 1
Anno: 2006
The article analyses the meaning of tattooing as a form of narration. Introducing the body as a text that can convey different forms of thought (derived both from philosophy and from sociology), the author maintains that the body modification is today as an open and living work whose interpretation has an influence on the individual identity and can be changed by means of the interaction with others. A thumbnail sketch of the history of the practice among traditional communities up to contemporary society is drawn to provide a series of fundamental usages for the inscription of the body. The concern here is to show tattooing as an expression of the whole individual (no longer divided into mind vs. body) and of his own perceived identity, underlying the relation of the chosen symbols (and of the symbolic ritual) with society, which remains the main source offering forms of representation and the main stage for the construction of identity. So that the whole final text can be read as the result of a process where the authorship is shattered among the society itself.

Valutazione e sociologia: qualche nota introduttiva digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2005 - 3
Anno: 2005
The essay presents and discusses some considerations concerning a sociological view of social programs evaluation. There are many reasons for a sociological perspective on evaluation to be interesting and worth to be considered: but all of them may be summarized – on one side – in the position for which social program evaluation is a special kind of applied social research and – on the other side – in the fact that considering evaluation as a ‘structured social action’ may offer significant suggestions for a better understanding of its deep nature and practical making. Assuming this perspective for dealing with evaluation underlines its being a relational construction, with a context-bounded meaning, teleologically oriented and embedded in a specific situation: with regard to this profile, a central (but not absolut) role is played by the procedures, methods, techiniques and instruments – from the social research – which allow evaluation process and results to be valid, rigorous and sound. In connextion with this last aspect, it’s the definition of evaluation as (a kind of) ‘applied social research’ to call for a priority of its methodological side but – at the same time – to link this question to the evident changes of paradigm who in the last decades affected the ways and forms in which social research is implemented.

La valutazione delle politiche dell’Unione Europea digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2005 - 3
Anno: 2005
The evaluation of Structural Funds in Italy has supported both the diffusion of evaluation activities and the use of structured evaluation strategies and methodologies. MEANS’ Guides published in 1999 contributed to open the discussion upon some key points of evaluation practice: the link with the role of rationality in decision processes, the priority of accountability or learning aims of evaluation (and the consistency of the two in everyday practice), the importance of participated evaluation and its applicability in complex programs as those supported by Structural Funds’. The importance given to monitoring and mid-term evaluation has maybe weakened the attention paid to the implementation process, while the direct link of evaluation to results has sometimes produced a «objectives- results» approach, not much inclined to «open the black box» of the programs and see how they really works and how they are improvable. Also for these reasons the contribution of sociology to the evaluation activities has been wrongly considered a marginal one: on the contrary, in a globalised society social research used in evaluation is very important to develop the awareness of how public policies really works and to help citizens’ empowerment. In this way, social research helps also citizens, stakeholders and decision makers to assume right choices.

La valutazione delle politiche sociali per la famiglia: alcune questioni di metodo digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2005 - 3
Anno: 2005
Evaluation research is for us of key importance because it constitutes the self-reflexive effort of social policies. This article shows how different approaches to policy making have been matched with different approaches to their evaluation, with the purpose of understanding how to implement policies supporting the well-being of the family. Specifically, we suggest that there is a need for relinquishing the traditional linear evaluation approaches, because they are too heavily based on a preconceived description of the social reality that does not leave space for the complex effects that social policies can have on family relations. We argue that there is the necessity of using complex models considering the family as an active subject, both in the planning and in the evaluation phase. We hypothesize the possibility of joining the contributions of the last generations of evaluation research, with the purpose of building a comprehensive evaluation tool based on the relational approach.

La valutazione delle politiche e dei sistemi educativi digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2005 - 3
Anno: 2005
After a short description of the history of school system evaluation, the author examines the main questions related to the implementation of the educational policies evaluation: a) the change of attitude needed inside the public administration as a consequence of the use of evaluation; b) the relationship between evaluators and policy makers; c) the goals of school system evaluation; d) the targets of evaluation; e) the relationship between external ed internal evaluation: f) the use of indicators. Finally it is presented the model followed by the school system evaluation Committee, which operates in the Trento region since 1992. The Committee has introduced gradually the idea of evaluation, beginning with the evaluation of the general system, then introducing schools self evaluation (which is now operated by almost all the Trento schools) to arrive finally to put forward the idea of school external evaluation.

Orientare alla scelta nella società dell’incertezza tra riflessività e responsabilità digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2005 - 3
Anno: 2005
The article offers an interpretation of guidance process in a sociological perspective. From this point of view, it’s clear that any approach to guidance assumed a specific conception of the linkage between individual and society. Starting form this consideration the article delineates what characterizes guidance process in the post-modern society; a society more and more fragmentated and uncertain, in which the subject seems to have increasing freedom of movement and choice. In so doing, the article proposes a new guidance approach («character-forming guidance»), considered as an appropriate aid to help the subject in making his choices: choices who are both coherent with self realization aim and responsible; that is to say, choices who keep in count both the social context to which the subject himself belongs to and the relational dynamics implied in the construction of self identity (personal and social identity).

«...Bianca più della Luna...». La festa della Madonna del Monte a Marta digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2005 - 3
Anno: 2005
The article is the result of observation in action during the «Madonna del Monte» feast in Marta, a village on Bolsena Lake. Festival is really spectacular and offers interesting point of views and archaic elements. Its climax is the so-called «Passata», which means that social classes represented in the procession (Knights, Farm labourers, Countrymen and Fishermen) get in the church three times and also means the kiss by the so-called Peace. Feast ends distributing the classic «Ring-shaped bread» to be put on arm among the Passers-by.

Gli attuali cambiamenti del capitalismo e la cultura del progetto digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2005 - 4
Anno: 2005
In the actual phase of capitalistic development, the features of a widespread culture du projet are emerging. Work and private life are series of time-limited projects that we can consider microspaces where it becomes possible to determine an order - differently from the network excluding any internal arbitrary division. At the same time, the economic axis, structuring the old left-right opposition, crosses the biopolitic axis where these political positions are reversed. It’s on this biopolitic field, as Boltanski describes it, that most of the conflicts about life’s reproduction take place today.
