SPORTIFICATION is a long term research and a set of cultural actions based on several archives about “historical” Eureopean TV casts or Eurovisions (Games without frontiers/Jeux Sans Frontieres/Spiel Onhe Grenzen). Sportification/società, agonismi e giochi senza frontiere (Sportification / eurovisions, performativity and playgrounds), analyzes, with an interdisciplinary approach, the issue of agonism in the public and game in contemporary cities/societies. Sportification  is an inter-disciplinary research focused on analyzing the subject of sport, of agon and of game nowadays. The basis of the work is a critical-comparative and sociological analysis dictated by a wide archive of images and videos of the famous tv-show Giochi Senza Frontiere / Jeux Sans Frontieres / Spiel Onhe Grenzen / It’s a Knockout, which constitues a master guide and a “true” archeology of the competitive action from the times of picturesque villages, to Eurovision, passing through the postpolitical era of European Community. The project deals both with the utopia of a playful society and with the social musculature leading to “sportification” of the collective body and to politicization of sport. It includes several text-contributions: David Robbins, Cesare Pietroiusti, Alexander Skidan (Chto Delat), Luisa Perlo, Claudio Cravero, Cecilia Casorati, Sven Luttiken, Valentin Torrens, Fabio Cafagna, Krzysztof Gutfrański, Gunnar Schmidt, Boris Nieslony, Tom Marioni, The Bureau of Melodramatic Research, Elena Volpato, Denis Isaia, Lisa Le Feuvre, Myriam Laplante, Armin Linke, Gianni Magrin. In the book you will find memorabilia, games, masquerade with critical contributions of experts and researchers on the connection between art, sport and society, european and community policies.
