Performance dell'abitare: Rom a Mazara del Vallo (un'etnografia)

Pietro Saitta


The present essay investigates the settlement process of a Roma community in the Sicilian Town of Mazara del Vallo. It suggests that, in spite of the high levels of discrimination, the Roma community became part of the national underclass, and that the integration within this class takes place through a set of informal practices involving the community and the State.
