I consumi culturali: le abitudini dei cittadini italiani

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The paper analyses the evolution and composition of cultural consumption in Italy in view of evaluating cultural policy aimed at access to the arts. The paper attempts at drawing a wider scenario of cultural habits in Italy, through critical interpretation of the figures published by the National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT). Such figures actually suggest a differentiated behaviour on the part of consumers, according to both their socio-demographic profiles (age, education, job position and residence) and the field of interest (museums and exhibitions, drama, opera and music, cinema). Figures are also examined in a diachronic perspective. In such a respect, public action may prove crucial in order for access to be granted to a wide audience: cultural consumption should be considered a relevant feature of citizens' «capabilities».
