Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


After years of substantial lack of interest, Italian academy seems to have finally introduced among its research objects the theme of youth subcultures and post-subcultures and their aesthetics and music. Comparing three recently published monographs on the subject (in particular, on punk and post-punk in the 1980s, and on contemporary hipsterism) it is possible to recognize some common theoretical assumptions that characterize this new line of inquiry: the relevance granted to the urban dimension in the processes of appropriation of transnational subcultures; the attention to the heterogeneity and internal differences in subcultures generated by different forms of appropriation; the attempt to read these phenomena in the light of broader socio-cultural issues, avoiding limiting the interest in the forms taken by subcultures and post-subcultures in our country within the boundaries of an excessively specialized field of study.
