Transnational narratives: representations and stories in the alterglobal movements, between cultural translation and activation of protest - The article focuses on the role of representations (particularly visual and medial representations), of storytelling (biographical, memory of activism, training to global activism), of personal experience (travels, experience included in counter-summits and protests) and more generally examines cultural practices in the building of basis of mutual recognition and identity for people involved in the networks of alterglobal movements. Representations, narratives and experience have a decisive role in the developing of a globalization from below, giving a sort of cultural ground to communication and organizational networks. In this sense, the "activist experience" acts as a device of mediation and cultural translation in the emerging alterglobal movements, becoming a fundamental dimension of movements which should be considered "transnational" not only on the level of organization, agenda setting, activation of protest, but also at level of subjectivity. The article develops in three parts. In the first part, it’s the analysis of representations of alterglobal movements in Genoa (counter-summit and protests against G8 summit) emerging from audiovisual products and documentary films. The second one focuses on biographical stories of activists about learning and training to experience activism in the new environment of protest taking place in Genoa. The third part summarizes concepts and theoretical approaches about a culturalist perspective in the study of alterglobal movements. Keywords: alterglobal movements, transnational subjectivity, cultural experience, representations, narratives. 174
