In the field of New Media, Edizioni Olivares has published the most innovative titles of the large university presses in the United States, of MIT Press in particular. In 2002, the publisher was the first publishing house to produce an international edition of Il linguaggio dei nuovi media (The Language of New Media) by Lev Manovich, a professor of Visual Arts at the University of California, San Diego. Manovich’s work is the first erudite, organic study on new media since the arrival of the Internet in which new media are explored in the context of the development trajectory of contemporary digital culture. The text is used today in Italy’s major universities.

Rodowick, analyzes the fate of film in the aesthetic and visual culture of the twenty-first century.
