/L’avventura. Italian Film and Media Studies Journal /


/L’avventura /is a new cinema and media studies journal, published by
one of the most established Italian publisher, Il Mulino. /L’avventura/
aims at positioning itself at the heart of the contemporary debate on
Italian visual and media culture, its history and its present
characteristics. The journal’s main areas of interest include:

* *Patterns, styles, figures*: the evolution of styles and patterns,
themes and narratives; the relationship between film and other art and
communication practices; modes of production and industrial forms.

* *Archive*: film and media archives, as much as oral sources.

* *Differences*: local, national, gender and generational identities as
shaped and moulded in cinema and media discourse.

* *Spectatorship*: reception and audience studies within the Italian
context, or related to the Italian media products circulating abroad.

* *Camera*:  the history and present of Italian photography, as related
to visual and media culture.

**Contemporary tale*: a fresh look onto contemporary narrative patterns
within Italian media production.
