By Allègre L. Hadida, Joseph Lampel, W. David Walls and Amit Joshi

The battle between traditional Hollywood studios and streaming services like Netflix is a matter of “institutional logics” – commitment logic versus convenience logic.

THE POWER OF LOCAL NETWORKING: BOLOGNA’S MUSIC SCENE AS A CREATIVE COMMUNITY, 1978–1992

By Sabrina Pedrini and Pier Luigi Sacco

The creative industries have been regarded, for many years, as the soul of urban development. Among these, the music industry is particularly vibrant in Italy. In this study, we show how the city of Bologna has developed a vital cultural “humus” that characterised the brand of the city itself, thanks to particular socio-economic conditions. However, the engineering of cultural policies adopted since the 1990s is leading to greater individualism and a loss of cohesion even within the musical community, losing the identity that has made the “city’s fortune”.

DO MUSEUMS FOSTER INNOVATION THROUGH ENGAGEMENT WITH THE CULTURAL AND CREATIVE INDUSTRIES?

By Chiara Dalle Nogare and Monika Murzyn-Kupisz

The recent narrative on museums as catalysts of innovation considers their relations with other cultural and creative industries to be very important. To verify this claim, we propose a conceptual framework qualifying these relations as either strong, moderate, or weak links, according to their potential in terms of knowledge spillovers from museums to the CCIs. We apply this classification to data collected from Polish museums. Our findings indicate that strong links are outnumbered by moderate and weak ones.

BARGAINING OVER THE BALLET

By Caterina Mauri and Alexander Wolf

Women and men in couples enjoy shared leisure activities. When their preferences are not aligned, they implicitly (or explicitly) bargain over their arts consumption. The more influential a woman is within the couple, the more both partners consume high culture in a way that matches female singles’ preferences.

THE ROLE OF CULTURAL CAPITAL ON THE VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS TO CULTURAL GOODS: A DIFFERENTIAL GAME APPROACH

By Massimo Finocchiaro Castro, Isidoro Mazza and Domenica Romeo

To what extent do cultural goods contribute to increase society’s level of cultural capital? Greater satisfaction for cultural goods consumption and voluntary contributions is linked to the highest levels of cultural capital. Social approval deriving from donations is positively related to society’s existing cultural capital and triggers a positive externality for donators, in turn increasing contributions.
