In the contemporary media landscape, we often know a movie or a TV show just because people have talked about it, or because we have seen pictures, advertizing or clips spread on the web. Thus, it seems that movies and shows are defined more by the social performances which surround them than simply by their textual nature. This conference seeks to uncover the galaxy of texts and performances surrounding an Italian narrative, Romanzo Criminale, and, by going beyond the notions of intertextuality and transmediality, find a methodology fit for its description, adapted to today’s “convergence culture” (Jenkins 2006a).
