Abstract (italiano)

On good practices in the arts really interested in technological innovations. The arts have helped us see deeper into what we have to expect from the emergence of important technological innovations. Is this the case also in the age of the internet and of the digital technologies? The present article proposes an anthropological approach to this question by addressing the following issues: 1. What do we mean by saying that the prevalence of the imagination over the articulated language might have regressive consequences?; 2. Is it true that the powerful automation ensured by the electronic technologies beat our imagination to the draw? 3. Which are the possible paths the arts could undertake in this context?
