Informations and abstract


Umbria has usually been considered a quiet and safe place in Italy. Over the last few years, however, local newspapers have started to describe it as an unsafe place, with lots of criminality and dangerous irregular immigrants. This paper analyses the portrait of unsafeness made by local newspapers during the year preceding 2014 local elections: we will try to reconstruct the way local newspapers build social unsafeness and spread moral panic among the resident population through their headlines.
