Abstract

The transformations occurred in the world of communication, and in the cultural contest that the media have greatly contributed to determinate, ask the social researchers for more empirical investigation and theorical consideration on the constitutive aspects of the link communication-education, within the new technological and anthropological scenarios. The interest of the Media Education has been progressively focused on these aspects, and the present article on "Violence in TV and children in Southern Italy" takes part in this interest. This Italian research wants to verify the consistence and quality of the effects that violence in TV can have on the juvenile people in sample-regions like Campania and Calabria, where a "subculture of violence" is shared,linked to the presence of camorra or 'ndrangheta in these areas. The first results from the analysis of data about a wide sample of 1.560 subjects, have put in evidence some significant trends related to the TV consume, leisure time and value scale of Southern Italian children and teen-agers, and to opinions, attitudes and behavior they have towards violence in TV and actual violence. After taking into consideration the connection between actual experiences and mediate experiences from the representations of violence in TV, and the different vision of violence in adults and children, the research team is currently working on a qualitative investigation of the observed phenomenon, in order to verify the social representations of violence shared by juvenile people (children and teen-agers) and adults (parents and teachers) in the social areas took into exam (Campania and Calabria).
