My PhD is a contribution to the debate on cultural value, which is an important research area of Centre for Cultural Policy Studies at Warwick University and also the core of the #Culturalvalue Initiative, an international platform of discussion led by Dr. Elenora Belfiore. My research focuses on the relationship between historical context, governmental policies and the perception of culture in the contemporary Italian society, exploring the change in cultural value in Italy from 2008 to present days, a period when the economic crisis has strongly influenced the everyday behaviour of the Italian people. This project, that includes theoretical and historical research, normative analysis, interviews and case studies, has the purpose to understand the change in perceptions of cultural value in Italy, a country with a rich cultural tradition, analyzing different sectors and different aspects of the national and local cultural life.
