Abstract

In the last decades Italy has become a new boundary territory for migration: thousands of people from different countries, describe a new frame for our country as “place of transition” by migration flows. This paper wants to discuss the hospitality of asylum seekers through the content analysis of 53 “memory document” collected by Commission of Bologna during the period 2012-14. Through a quali- tative approach, what emerges from biographical documents analysed, is a new representation of social drama and violence linked to asylum experience’s and able to overcome the daily stereotype of media. Moreover, this drama appears as a cultural performance useful in constructing of social and collective memory.
