The media dimension of crime has undergone relevant shifts in recent years, in conjunction with the evolution of journalism, along with the diffusion of mainstream media and the rise of internet. This is what recent studies have unearthed, thanks to some successful theoretical insights in the field of communication studies. Technology, entertainment, journalism turned “media logic” into a shared social culture. The narration of (criminal) risks marks daily life, insofar as they encompass culture and religion. Beck has emphasized this aspect in A God of One’s Own (2008), in which he probes the processes of individualization of faith tethered to the shortcomings of institutions, including religious ones. In this account, Beck underlines the consequences of globalization and the construction of symbolic universes. Frantic and fleeting, they have been corroded by uncertainty and violence. Hence follows the introduction of innovative gists as “dictatorship of relativism”, “fluid religiosity”, “subjective polytheism”, that are connected to the narrative of the personal God. Paolo Sorrentino’s Tv series, The Young Pope, deals with the search of God through the analysis of contradictions and ambiguities permeating the practice of spiritual power. Mannerist and baroque masterpieces are the setting for the crumbling of post-modern certainties. Men look for the hidden truth legitimating the incurable flagellation of social conscience. Lenny Belardo (Pius XIII) is an uproot young Pope searching for his family origins. He fights the intrigues, hypocrisies, abuses of the ecclesiastic world, which is not new to behavioral, political and ethical short circuits, as recently denounced by Pope Francis. Beyond the aesthetic value of his action, Pius XIII rethinks the role of communication and information: he prefers neither communicating nor appearing, so as to strengthen the mystery surrounding his persona and thus contradicting the rules of the mainstream mindset. Fighting violence and abuses of power requires low visibility: this is the antiphrastic communicative strategy behind the show, which emphasizes the contrast between search of truth and narration of evil.
