Learning Objectives

The main objective of the course is to provide students with the critical tools for understanding the relationship developed in the second half of the twentieth century between mass culture and cultural consumption, especially as regards music production and consumption.

Program

The course intends to offer a diachronic reading of the relationship between mass culture and cultural consumption during the twentieth century and in particular in the second half of the century. In the general part, the topic will be addressed at an international level. The monographic part will analyze the situation in Italy and in particular the role of the song as an element of mass production and consumption. On more than one occasion, the musical language becomes a terrain of encounter or clash between popular culture and high culture, interpreting and accompanying the main social and economic transformations of the nation and generating a debate in which intellectuals and artists participate. The evolution of the song thus becomes a key to interpreting the cultural processes of the twentieth century.
