Starting from the ideas offered by Erving Goffman, this article attempts to explain how stereotypical representations of gender changed over time and the way in which they were used by Italian commercial advertising. We analyzed the content of 30 advertisements in Italian magazines, from the years 1982 to today and concluded that commercial advertising of the last 40 years in Italy has used gender stereotypes mainly to perform its prescriptive function. It appears to provide acceptable representations that each time aim to reassure the new behaviours of both consumers, men and women. The attenuation of the gender display that can be observed does not correspond so much to the end of a woman’s subordination rituals (since, indeed, the male hierarchical function seems to be strengthened) as to the emergence of a uniformity of representations, which to a certain extent unites men with women in impotence, both being levelled in the role of consumers.
