Abstract

This paper describes the multi-directionality of the discrimination’s dynamics between African immigrants and Italian residents in the Domiziana road, near the Italian smalltown of Castel Volturno. Starting from a promised paradise in the name of tourism development’s myth, a forty years huge illegal housing process has degraded the territory that it had sought to enrich. This degenerative process of the place in an “urbanistical dump” has transformed the Domiziana road in a “social dump”. So now in this region a slum for Italian marginals intersects a banlieue of illegal immigrants. Here, in a widespread exploitation context of illegal employment, this groups are competing for 3D jobs (dirty, dangerous and demeaning). This while the local economical-political actors fight in the name of multiculturalist migrant’s hospitality policy or for the defense of traditional identity. So, the general purpose of this ethnographic fieldwork is to highlight the intersectionality factors between ethno- cultural diversity and socio-economic inequality in the anthropology of dwelling in Castel Volturno.
