Abstract

What characterizes the migration phenomenon in Italy? In what spaces is possible to implement prospects for intercultural coexistence between local population and migrants themselves? The immigrant experience all the condition of uprooting, he doesn’t belong to the reality of the reception process and he certainly faces a processor of resocialization which puts his identity in crisis. Integration is a complex path (Ambrosini, 2017, 2020) at territorial level (Fukuyama, 1995, Lin et al., 1986) and positive results obtained using sport as a mean of inclusion has led to the consideration of amateur football (Gasparini, 2013; Gasparini & Beaud, 2018; Vinnai, 2003) which has sorted positive effects also in other European countries. Football is a sport with a high educational value, the social capital produced (Bourdieu, 1988; Coleman, 1988, 1999; Martelli, 2015, 2020; Putnam, 2000; Russo, 2016, 2019; Vinnai, 2003) in sports has been effective for integration purposes. The relational environment (Donati, 2008; Martelli, 2020; Tallarita, 2014) of sport allowed the construction of paths of inclusion (Elling et al., 2001; Caperchione et al., 2011; O’Driscol et al., 2014) characterized by a high regulatory power thanks to binding rules and values (Elias, 1988; Elias & Dunning, 1989).
