Abstract
This work analyzes cultural differences between Italy and Canada based on newspaper articles and headlines on three major events of our recent past: the attack at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001; the death of Osama Bin Laden in May 2011; and the most recent massacre in Oslo, Norway, in July 2011. The objective consists, therefore, in demonstrating the possibility of extrapolating the subtext for newspaper articles which can help to investigate a country’s cultural parameters. The analysis will be conducted using cultural studies theories with regards to modern and/or contemporary issues, as well as tools related to the field of semiotics.
