During the last decade, especially after the “refugees crisis” of 2015, a number of diversified collaborations between public and private stakeholder and resident local population addressed to migrants have developed in some Italian cities. According with contexts of experimentation, these initiatives can take different forms and intensity - such as voluntary guardian, mentor, buddy, tutor, foster or welcoming family - but all share a common focus on the interaction between reception, integration and interpersonal and intercultural relationships and the aim of promoting migrant inclusion in local society through individual and community engagement. Somehow contrasting and challenging Italian and European political and social trends under the sign of security and control in migration/immigration issue, residents experiment and open new spaces for exchanges between people with different backgrounds and for practising forms of substantial and acted citizenship. Thus creating a multi-faced process involving the ideal polarity host/citizen and at the same time calling for the raise of municipal hospitality and solidarity.
