The advent of digital media has produced changes in both communicative and anthropological perspectives: digital media are, in fact, an integral part of the daily life of humans as they embrace the social, cultural, political and economic dimension of the contemporary world in which humans acts. The Catholic Church has not remained impassive in this process. Indeed the response of the catholic church has evolved over and with the times. It has often sought to integrate these changes by proposing a cultural approach which allows us to understand the digital environment as a public space. This digital forum is amendable to a faith base Christian approach and can be seen as a public square. This public square, the Agorà represents an occasion for authentic relational encounters between individuals.
