Un dono al plurale

Abstract: The Gift at the Plural

This paper deals with the socio-anthropological analysis of the relation between the donation of blood and the migrant communities in Italy, particularly the Moroccan Muslim one in Turin. What is the meaning that the migrant gives to the donated blood? What is the meaning he gives to a kind of experience he didn’t had tried before, into his home country? The act can be read as the solving of an hospitality dept, as a way to feel integrated and to coexist and cohabit with the landing society.

Keywords: Gift, Blood, Immigration, Body, Islam.
