    I wish to express my gratitude to my colleagues in the Faculty of Sociology of the University of Trento for their support while I was conducting the empirical research and the theoretical study on which this book is based, and to the scholars who have shared with me the initiatives taken by SCOS (Standing Conference on Organizational Symbolism). My thanks also go to the heads of the organizations who made my empirical research possible, and to the students on my sociology of organization course at the Universities of Trento and Siena. I am indebted to Per Olof Berg, Judith Blau and Antonio de Lillo for their encouragement, to Sue Jones for the opportunity she offered me to write this book for Sage, to Adrian Belton for his marginal notes and his translation of the text, and to Liliana Albertazzi, Alessandro Cavalli, Pasquale Gagliardi and Silvia Gherardi for having read the first draft of this book. However, all responsibility for what follows is mine alone.
