Starting from 2014-2015, the Department of Political, Social and Communication Sciences of the University of Salerno begins a project with some classical high schools called “Liceo della comunicazione”. This essay is an exploratory work that aims to show and analyze the methodology adopted for teaching media and in particular digital and social media. The period taken into consideration is the three-year period 2015-2018 in two high schools in Campania: the Liceo Classico Torquato Tasso of Salerno and the Liceo Pietro Giannone of Benevento. This methodology presupposes three different pedagogical models related to three different disciplines: theater, literature and digital media. The starting point is the work of the Ravenna theater company Teatro delle Albe led by Marco Martinelli and Ermanna Montanari. Since the 1990s, the Teatro delle Albe has developed a particular pedagogical technique called non scuola. Non scuola has as its main teaching instrument the choir. The chorus is a singular-plural entity (Nancy 2001, Del Gaudio 2018). Our goal is to use some non scuola tools, such as the choir, to let young students experience the logic, that regulates their digital performance and let them understand how their identity is achieved online through a creative approach for the classics of literature. In particular, the model is connected to the online staging, on the social networks of some characters of the classics novels, in order to show how online social interaction works from a metamedial space and a rebirth like the theater.
