Anna & Marta will present "Less is more? Perception and Absence: Images Meaning and Narration Without Words" 4th June
When Anna Loscalzo met semiotics it was love at first sight. She received a Bachelor degree in Modern Literature at the University of Genoa. Her thesis on Homo Narrator introduced her in the world of semiotic thinking. Thus she moved to Bologna for her MA in Semiotics at the Alma Mater University. Her work is currently focusing on inter-semiotic translations, gender studies and narrations. The topic of her research thesis focuses on narrative structures and the relation between contemporary Tv series and literature; she studies the relation between media and the way they influence each other. She is one of the founders of SemioBo, the first Italian semiotics blog about the works and experiences of young semioticians.
Anna & Marta loves to present at Semiofest because…
The idea to investigate Wordless Books in the framework of the Semiofest 2015 was immediately in our minds. We would like to consider Wordless Books as thinking tools that can show us how people's ways of interpreting, representing and connecting with their environment through images and words are changing. Semiofest is a creative, stimulating environment and the theme of “Love” seems perfectly fitting to childhood and even more to the best human expectations and dreams, developing into projects since the first years of life. Children literature, even (and maybe more) when wordless, can really enhance Love and change the future.
