The Italian case takes place in Naples, Italy, and aims at fostering social cohesion in the Neapolitan urban community by providing local and immigrant citizens with further opportunities to socialize, meet, and exchange perspectives and viewpoints. Indeed, in Naples, the high presence of foreign residents does not always correspond to a process of active social inclusion. The Department of Humanities of the University of Naples Federico II coordinates the Italian case. Moreover, it endeavors to promote a local social network involving local socially and civically active associations for the implementation and sustainability of the case. Along with local associations, a group of about 10 youths – both local and migrant ones – was recruited and trained to involve them in the case as citizen scientists.

Il caso italiano si svolge a Napoli, in Italia, e mira a promuovere la coesione sociale nella comunità territoriale locale fornendo a cittadini locali e migranti maggiori opportunità di socializzazione, incontro e occasioni di scambio di punti di vista. Infatti, a Napoli l'alta presenza di residenti stranieri non sempre corrisponde ad un processo di inclusione sociale attiva. Il Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici dell'Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II coordina il caso italiano. Inoltre, si impegna a promuovere una rete sociale locale che coinvolga associazioni locali socialmente e civicamente attive per l'implementazione e la sostenibilità del caso. Insieme alle associazioni, un gruppo di circa 10 giovani cittadini - sia locali sia migranti - stati reclutati e formati per coinvolgerli nel caso come citizen scientists.
