Abstract (in English): 

Beyond the boundaries of the book. The Italian literature in the digital age is the master thesis of Daniele Giampà, a student of Italian and Spanish philology at the university of Zurich. The analysis of the Italian digital literature is articulated in three main parts: history of the electronic literature, predecessors of electronic literature and the analysis of works of Italian digital literature written between 1997-2012. The selection of the works is based on a taxonomy elaborate in the introduction of the thesis.

The central arguments of the thesis are the creation of an analytical instrument for the digital context, that is the matrix composed of the dimension of narratology and the dimension of informatics, the demonstration of the analogies between print literature and electronic/digital literature and the innovations brought by new media to literature.
