The increasing pervasiveness of technologies in social life bring to the dematerialization of the social life. In other words, people tend to consider increasingly important the automatic processing of information in the production processes and in communication. The authoress started her essay wandering how much this tendency alters our relationship with the world takes consistence from it, and taking meaning from inter-subjective backgrounds. By assuming that consuming is a significant social acting, the authoress has analysed the processes of virtualisation that have to do with this part of the social life through the exam of a real case, looking for possible spaces of consuming: the BOPERVOI project of the Town of Bologna, Telecom and Coop Adriatica, which have offered on-line services and goods to a panel of families in Bologna.
