Syrian parody on Daesh

Syrian activists and filmakers Youssef Helali, Maen Watfe and Muhammad Damlakhy have just released “Daya al Taseh”, a series of sketches lampooning Daesh (ISIS). Check this out, and think of these brave guys when you say “I am Charlie”. There are so many “Charlies” in the Arab world going unnoticed (luckily the WSJ has noticed […]

Revamping Syria’s creative resistance

Revamping Syria’s creative resistance

These days, we don’t hear that much concerning Syrian civil society and its resilience. Yet, this is something we should care about and we should try to listen to Syrian voices from civil society that have been silenced by the polarization Syrian regime vs ISIS (Da’ash). I’m proud to be part of a team of […]

La parodia dell’ISIS firmata Iraq

La parodia dell’ISIS firmata Iraq

Riposto qui la mia ultima analisi (almeno per quest’anno) della copertura mediatica in lingua araba del fenomeno ISIS (Da’ash in arabo) che ho curato in questi ultimi mesi, con il prezioso aiuto di Qais Fares, per Arab Media Report. I capitoli precedenti hanno trattato i media siriani, quelli panarabi, e quelli libanesi, sempre in relazione […]

Buon compleanno Abuna

Buon compleanno Abuna

Per il sessantesimo compleanno di Padre Paolo Dall’Oglio, rapito in Siria nel luglio 2013, Riccardo Cristiano ha scritto questo bel pezzo che ripubblico di seguito.   “Perché il vulcano siriano oltre a infangare l’uomo infangherà tutta questa regione, compresa Ninive, compreso il tuo Libano, se non ci svegliamo”   Una frase che Paolo ha detto […]
Da’ash (ISIS) visto dai media siriani

Da’ash (ISIS) visto dai media siriani

Dallo scorso 4 Novembre abbiamo cominciato, insieme ad Arab Media Report, e con la preziosa collaborazione di Qais Fares, un monitoraggio dei media arabi rispetto alla questione ISIS altrimenti detto Da’ash con il suo acronimo arabo (che userò d’ora in avanti). Dalle nostre conversazioni è nata l’esigenza, che speriamo venga apprezzata dai giornalisti e dai […]

Syria, Here and Elsewhere

Syria, Here and Elsewhere

In 1970 French filmmaker Jean Luc Godard was commissioned by Palestinian political group Al Fatah to shoot a documentary intended to celebrate the “victory” (as the film was originally supposed to be called) of the Palestinian uprising. Yet, the uprising ended up being defeated, and so were the aspirations of the film. Godard went back […]
ISIL (ISIS/IS/Daesh) and western media: accidental allies?

ISIL (ISIS/IS/Daesh) and western media: accidental allies?

Here below my latest opinion piece for Al Jazeera English. As for the name issue (well, Al Jazeera has a policy which is to call it ISIL), I’ve drafted my thoughts here on this blog. ISIL and western media: Accidental allies? ISIL’s alleged influence on social networking sites might be the result of western hype. […]
Le nostre ossessioni di schermi, da Bin Laden allo Stato Islamico

Le nostre ossessioni di schermi, da Bin Laden allo Stato Islamico

Settembre 2001, la più grande paura (e ossessione) mediatica dell’Occidente si chiamava Osama Bin Laden. Appariva minacciosamente con il logo dorato di Al Jazeera alle spalle, l’inquadratura era studiata con semplicità, dietro il mezzobusto di Osama campeggiava un paesaggio roccioso con un solo accessorio di scena: il kalashnikov. L’apparizione parlava piano, con studiata lentezza scandiva […]
Against the odds: Syria’s flourishing mediascape

Against the odds: Syria’s flourishing mediascape

While everybody talks about ISIS or the Syrian regime there is indeed an effort being made by civil society and media activists to build an infrastructure for media pluralism: against all odds. My latest article for Al Jazeera English, authored with Enrico de Angelis and Yazan Badran, takes a look at Syria’s emerging mediascape.   […]
Riflessioni sparse su ISIS, stampa, e attivismo in Italia

Riflessioni sparse su ISIS, stampa, e attivismo in Italia

In questi giorni l’ISIS o ISIL o semplicemente IS è tornato alla ribalta della stampa mondiale dopo il video shock dell’uccisione del giornalista americano James Foley.  Come se prima la “minaccia ISIS” non fosse esistita, o fosse stata miracolosamente sotto controllo (tanto è “circoscritta” alla Siria e all’Irak), ora invece non si sente che parlare […]
Remembering the chemical attack in Ghouta

Remembering the chemical attack in Ghouta

….one year has passed since a chemical attack was launched on “Ghouta”, in the outskirts of Damascus, the area which was once known as “the green belt”, “the oasis” of Damascus.. A Facebook group called Ghouta-we will never forget you and a number of other initiatives – such as a Global Day of solidarity with […]
