Gregorio Magini presents Nerdopoli, collection of essays on nerdom by Eleonora Caruso.
Until a few years ago, the nerd, in Italy translated as 'loser', was the misfit boy, physically repellent, a brave man to the limit of maniacal and dedicated to hobbies considered ridiculous, such as science fiction stories and technology.
But times change, and over the years there has been strengthening a real identity pride: today the nerd is no longer the loser with thick glasses, but a man, or a woman, with precise skills and aware of its value , also ideological.
The authors of this essay want to offer an in-depth overview of what today can mean 'nerdity'.
As in a metropolis, 'experiencing nerdity' means interacting with a diverse group of people with different and specific interests: from videogames expert to gatekeepers, from LGBT manga lover to anime lover, to show the reader that there is not one of us and one of them, that every nerd is a person and that in every person there is always a bit of nerd.
