Fattorello's The Theory of the Social Practice of Information is the
only Italian theory of communication. It is not only relevant to
journalism and communication, but also to society in general. Fattorello addresses the differences between contingent and non-contingent information. The theory is translated into English for the first time and is contextualized and put into a historical framework by Prof. Ragnetti's additional text. The article by Ragnetti and Dr. Francesca Romana Seganti, reprinted at the end of the book, shows the theory's utility today. Translated for the first time into English, this book will add to the cannon of theoretical works in communication at a time when works from outside the Anglo-American milieu are increasingly being considered.
