Four scholars discuss the book Il dono al tempo di internet by Marco Aime and Anna Cossetta (2010) which analyses the ways in which the Maussian idea of the gift as a creator of social relations can be readapted to the contemporary world of the web. The debate opens with a critical reading by Alessandro Delfanti, followed by a reply by one of the two authors. Paolo Magaudda and Fabio Dei enrich the debate with two further contributions on how to develop the relationship between the gift and internet.
