Abstract

This contribution aims to illustrate how, in several cultural productions, Giuseppe Conte has become a mainstream character. The popularisation of politics, the celebrity politics and the media exposure the Prime Minister was subject to in the months of the first wave of the pandemic have certainly contributed placing him at the centre of fandom phenomena, which has been converted into the various platforms under the name of "Le bimbe di Conte" (Conte’s Little girls). The empirical research on small data we want to present relates to the Italian community of writers on the Wattpad platform who, during the lockdown, wrote and shared 'stories' featuring Giuseppe Conte
