  • La forza trasformativa delle utopie quotidiane

    • Authors: Ilenya Camozzi
      Abstract: The rapidity of recent social transformations and the suspension of much of the knowledge that has settled in our daily lives call for a twofold action: designing new political objectives of social justice and shedding light on analytical tools capable of both laying bare inequalities and the power structures that feed them, and outlining paths of transformative intervention. The link between sociology and utopia emerges here with particular clarity. Both, in fact, refer to an imaginary reconstruction of society. Starting with the most recent thematisation of utopia - whose real, everyday, concrete, embodied character is emphasised - this essay explores the link between utopias, common sense and everyday life. The aim is to weave the threads between the transformations of common sense and everyday utopian practices against the backdrop of that re-enchantment of the everyday of Weberian memory. The space-time of the everyday becomes the stage where minute, banal and taken for granted routines can become counter-hegemonic actions, everyday utopias endowed with transformative power.

  • Il futuro come Utopia'

    • Authors: Giuliana Mandich
      Abstract: This paper aims to understand how the first phase of exit from the pandemic has changed the temporality of everyday life and produced an affective atmosphere characterized by a positive attitude towards the future. I will start by analyzing the link between utopia and everyday life: on the one hand, as a privileged area of prefigurative practices in the different versions of utopian realism, and on the other, as trapped in the present in the theories of presentification. I will then examine some emblematic cases of a  'need for the future' that emerged in the first exit from the pandemic in the spring-summer 2021. Finally, starting from the affective and temporally complex nature of the present as conceptualized by Berlant (Berlant, 2011; Berlant, 2008) and Coleman (Coleman, 2020b; Coleman, 2020a), I will try to account for the push toward the future that the partial exit from the pandemic has perhaps brought out.

  • Itinerari dell’oblio e della memoria. Tra ricostruzione del passato e
           prospettive per il futuro

    • Authors: Teresa Grande
      Abstract: This article aims to highlight how the sociology of memory actually corresponds to a sociology of remembering and forgetting. Indeed, if a component of forgetting is always present in memory processes, in order to fully understand the past it is not enough to focus on its visible traces, but it is also necessary to investigate those contents that have been lost, that have not been deposited or that have been prevented from having visibility. In other words, if we normally think of the sociology of memory by assuming memory as remembrance and focusing on its visible traces, we  actually have to consider that it simultaneously involves remembering and forgetting; two complementary activities that are not always assumed with adequate balance in sociological analyses of memory phenomena. With this in mind, the article reflects on the different meanings of forgetting and reinterprets the traditions of memory studies in the light of a renewed focus on forgetting issues. Thus, the paths of forgetting in the main paradigms of memory will be traced and discussed: that of the social frameworks of memory, that of the critical-emancipatory paradigm, that of the places of memory, and that of memory work.

  • Ri-abitare gli spazi: immaginari, utopie e pratiche in trasformazione

    • Authors: Francesca Bianchi
      Abstract: Today our daily life appears a multifaceted and articulated set (mix) of ordinary and extraordinary, stability and change: a context inside which a range of latent “possibilities” is nested, on which human creativity committed to building the future seems to find expression (Jedlowski 2017, Augé 2012). Investigating the theme of spaces and living has a lot to do with reflection on change - and on the subject’s ability to imagine and build the future - because it implies questioning a world that is changing and arouses new expectations and needs. Compared to a period in which, in our country, (little or) almost no reflection was carried out on this phenomenon, the house today appears (to be) one of the universal places from which to try to rethink ourselves and the word we live in.

  • A genderless society: the transformative power of utopia

    • Authors: Anna Carreri, Barbara Poggio
      Abstract: With this contribution we pay attention to how the concept of utopia is closely linked, both in terms of content and method, to the gender perspective and, more specifically, to feminist reflection. We do so by dwelling on some of the most influential voices that have contributed to the recent rediscovery of utopia as a mobilizing force for critiquing and reacting to advanced capitalism. After examining the emancipatory and (potentially) transformative role of sociology through the formulation and critique of utopias as a distinctive method of the discipline, we consider the dialectical relationship between utopia and praxis as experienced by communities in everyday life. We pay special attention to its role in shaping a more gender egalitarian society, where production and reproduction are no longer seen as alternative and differently valued domains. Then, the article focuses on how utopian thought has found a fertile space within feminism, both on the level of literary fiction and theoretical elaboration, to critique and redefine existing arrangements of social relations. The article closes with some reflections on how utopian realism can enable us to overcome the fear of change in gender relations and counter the risk of "retrotopias".

  • Utopie per fare la differenza: dimensioni post-eurocentriche e
           post-antropocentriche dell’utopico

    • Authors: Paola Rebughini
      Abstract: The aim of this article is to analyse, on the one hand, the relation between modern ideas of utopia and post/decolonial criticism of the Eurocentric sources of such conceptualizations of utopia and, on the other hand, to expand this critique of historicism and teleological approaches with the help of ecofeminist visions. Current forms of everyday utopias – especially those driven by young people - are deeply influenced by a new attention towards the plurality of differences, with their intertwinements and intersections, inspiring a new conceptualization of immanent utopia looking beyond binarism, androcentric, Eurocentric and anthropocentric standpoints. The article highlights how, by reassembling existing resources and knowledges, utopia appears today more as a method than a goal.

  • Six Memos for the Current Time.

    • Authors: Alessandro Pratesi
      Abstract: This contribution is inspired by Italo Calvino’s Harvard Lectures which should had been hold at Harvard in 1986 and were never delivered because of Calvino’s sudden and premature death. Calvino began his American lectures with a series of reflections on six qualities that he considered essential for good literature, and then broadened his reflections to other (no strictly literary) dimensions of existence. This article is based on a series of reflections on six sociological subjects that I consider essential to frame the recent pandemic, and then it extends such reflections to other realms of our everyday life. Care, Welfare, Death, Politics, Europe, Marginality: the common denominator of these different key sociological subjects is represented by emotions and their every so often unacknowledged role in interpreting and explaining contemporary phenomena.

  • L’insostenibile spinta utopica dei bambini.

    • Authors: Caterina Satta
      Abstract: An indissoluble bond holds utopia and childhood together, not only because children are often at the centre of utopian narratives and imaginaries in which they embody salvific roles of corrupt societies – or, specularly in dystopias, that of perturbers of peaceful orders – but because they both evoke promises of radiant futures. Childhood is the symbolic place, the container of our hopes and desires for the future as a society, and utopia is simultaneously the 'place that is not there' and the 'good place' in which we socially project our aspirations for social change in an ameliorative sense. If this consolidated binomial appears self-evident and thus assumes the force of a "dominant discursive regime", it is true that by examining the production of the adult-centred discourse, and putting the children of the present and everyday life back at the centre of reflection, its explanatory tightness and projective force can become object of scrutiny and rethinking. By analysing the social construction of childhood and the role of children as social actors, this essay proposes a parallelism between utopia and childhood and between everyday utopias and children, showing the links that bind them, but also the repercussions of this link both in children's lives and in the prefigurations of ideal societies to imagine and to actualize.

  • The agency of the futures

    • Authors: Giacomo Bazzani
      Abstract: In recent years the study of the future has (re-)emerged and is raising increasing interest in the social sciences. However, this field of research often seems fragmented into different perspectives, as though the common object of study were vague or inconsistent. In line with the pragmatist tradition, this article elucidates the key role played by the future within courses of action, both routine and planned. When routine is broken, projective reasoning emerges and creates a horizon of possibilities that is the precondition of agency capacity. Expectations, imaginaries, and narratives of the future are the constitutive elements of projective reasoning: these are introduced together with some examples of their influence on agency. This framework provides the theoretical ground for analysing the influence of the future in the course of action and it can be applied to a wide range of social dynamics.

  • La grande scommessa. Turismo e pandemia a Firenze.

    • Authors: Alessio Di Marco, Tommaso Frangioni, Costanza Gasparo
      Abstract: This paper is centred on the analysis of some recent developments of the touristic system in the italian city of Firenze. The COVID-19 pandemic hit hard the urban economic system of the city, which is increasingly dependent on tourism. We analyze how the pandemic has been exploited by some local actors to develop their own narrative of the touristic future of the city, in light of a rebranding attempt meant to position it as an «elite» touristic destination. We explore the contradictions between different ideas of how tourism should affect the urban fabric.

  • L’intreccio delle influenze.

    • Authors: Carlo Sorrentino, Laura Solito, Silvia Pezzoli, Letizia Materassi
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has monopolized communication and media information for months, becoming the first global social fact in the digital age. In a new and redefined communicative space, characterized by the pervasive presence of digital media, each information source needs to establish a specific positioning strategy in the crowded communication field. The article aims at investigating the impact of those processes on the production, spread and use of institutional information. It focuses the attention on the “communicative behaviors” of 12 Italian institutional, political and media players, analyzing their contents’ production, the intensity and characteristics of this production and the communicative resources they used in managing their Facebook pages/profiles. In order to outline the players’ digital strategies and to frame their positioning in the public sphere, different metrics were analyzed and the possible and meaningful connections among the different players and strategies were considered. From this study, a dense interweaving of voices seems to emerge, attesting the complexity of the communicative space, but also the “functionality” of each voice in a sort of inter-relational attitude.

  • Per un idealtipo del capitalismo italiano

    • Authors: Nicolo' Bellanca
      Abstract: The root causes of the Italian decline lie in the distortions of collective action, which enhance the perverse behavior of both the elite and the people. The elites are “packs of wolves” that extract income and wealth to the detriment of society, shaping formal institutions. The people cultivate myriads of small special interests, operating as “swarms of locusts”, by circumventing and emptying formal institutions.
