Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Journalistic rhetoric and media imagery speak of a world in decline, whose horizon is becoming increasingly difficult to see, tormented by innumerable fears and challenged by imminent catastrophes. Political crises, ecological disasters, global plots, end-of-the-world scenarios. But what is the boundary between current or future dangers, media narratives and socio-cultural imagery? What makes the catastrophism so rooted in the collective imagination, since ancient times? How does it spread in contemporary society and through the media? The volume gives an account of this complex symbolic and cultural interweaving, laying the foundations for analytically reading the contemporary discourses of and on the catastrophe: mapping the common structures and themes, recalling the mathematical-semiotic theories that have used it, investigating the cultural dynamics and the concretization of the catastrophe in the images, and investigating the narratives and experiences perceived during and following these events, the cultural and concrete remains of their influence in our culture.
