About

Since its beginning in 1954, television moulded popular culture; in the 1980s advertising proposed a new lifestyle for a generation and music provided the ever changing sound track for youngsters and adults.

The Mass Communication and Media Industries: the Italian Style in Producing and Managing Television, Advertising and Music course at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (UCSC) will focus on these three different industries that will be studied from the point of view of history and theory, and from a practical and productive perspective.

  • Analyze different ways in which different media work in presenting news and programmes
  • Discuss the purposes of Italian national and commercial TV channels
  • Explain how advertising communication differs from basic human communication
  • Analyze the creative process of an advertising campaign
  • Compare Italian and international TV commercials
