Learning Objectives

The objective of the course is to provide the necessary tools for the understanding of the socio-economic scenario, including the transition from traditional advertising to the so-called integrated communication, the languages ??and techniques that characterize the new advertising, and the skills related to strategic and media planning of a communication campaign, with particular attention to the web and the unconventional. A further objective is to assist students in developing critical thinking on the social impact of advertising and its cultural, political and ethical influence on customs, mentality, attitudes and behavior. Thus, the course will offer an additional focus on gender representation in advertising.

The second part will concentrate rather on the the theme of Brand Activism, an emerging marketing tactic for brands seeking to stand out in a fragmented marketplace by taking public stances on social and political issues.

Program

The program is divided into two parts. The first lessons will be dedicated to defining the concepts of advertising and integrated communication in an era marked by the crisis of traditional forms of promotional communication. After evaluating the reasons why traditional advertising appears outdated, the most recent languages ​​and techniques which seem to give it a second life will be explored, with cross-media, interactivity, storytelling and unconventional marketing being among them. In addition, the characteristics of the different means of communication used by advertising will be assessed in order to identify their strengths, weaknesses and peculiarities. The  second part of the program will be focused on planning strategies for integrated communication campaigns. Particular attention will be given to the theme of brand activism.
