Aldus 2.0 (, Bembus’ international platinum open access journal, wel-
comes proposals for the first issue of the year 2022. Aldus 2.0 aims to explore digital tex-
tuality by stimulating a debate around the main themes of Digital Humanities in philo-
logical, literary and linguistic fields. The diffusion of new technologies and their application in

different areas of Italian studies has offered new perspectives of study, analysis and research and
has opened technical, theoretical and methodological questions which are a great challenge for
philologists, linguists, publishers and a number of other professionals. In this respect, the journal
aims at being a shared space open to comparison with other disciplines, such as communication
sciences, which welcomes contributions from experts in different domains. This interdisciplinary
approach fosters methods and perspectives that can shed light on several aspects that could
otherwise be ignored or only partially discussed. For these reasons, the journal intends to adopt

an innovative approach within the current editorial scenario and deal with topics concerning glo-
bal networks and digital texts.
