Before moving to Brazil, Canevacci was a Professor of Cultural Anthropology and the Faculty of Communication Sciences of the 'La Sapienza' University of Rome. He also directed the Italian magazine 'Avatar' from 2001 to 2006. He is particularly well known for the development of the concepts of 'communicational metropolis', 'multividual' as well as the tensions between 'self-and hetero-representation'. He is also known for his contribution to the study of digital cultures and his dialogic relationship with 'native' populations such as the Bororo and the Xavante of Central Brazil.
