The present article discusses the history of a Roma community settled in Mazara del Vallo (Sicily). The experience of such community becomes a way to reflect on the role of informal practices in determining positive, albeit paradoxical, changes concerning people at the margins. The paper is intended to de-structurate a significant part of the securitarian discourse shaping the immigration policies in Italy. Yet, it aims to show how certain forms of deviance can be propedeutic to the insertion of migrants in the Italian society and economy, and it advocates for a return to welfarianism.

Abstract

The present article discusses the history of a Roma community settled in Mazara del Vallo (Sicily). The experience of such community becomes a way to reflect on the role of informal practices in determining positive, albeit paradoxical, changes concerning people at the margins. The paper is intended to de-structurate a significant part of the securitarian discourse shaping the immigration policies in Italy. Yet, it aims to show how certain forms of deviance can be propedeutic to the insertion of migrants in the Italian society and economy, and it advocates for a return to welfarianism.
