What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“An overdue study on the relationship between on- and offline lifeworlds which is of interdisciplinary appeal. Beyond its strong theoretical and methodological approaches the book shows how Siena's contrade appropriate cyberspace weaving a web of web-pages and in this way humanize such a powerful and multimedia communication tool.” (Fabio Mugnaini, Associate Professor, Storia delle tradizioni popolari, University of Siena)
