This contribution addresses the bullying issue placing it culturally within postmodern society. Fear, characterised by liquidity and contingency, become one of the manifestations of humanity today, with all the defence mechanisms that are consciously and not activated even among the youngest. The phenomenon of bullying, in its complexity, can be read as an expression of the "do-it-yourself fear", a mixed reaction, of attraction and repulsion towards the diversity and weakness of the other, difficult to manage even in relation to one’s own fragility. The bullying stats in our country are decreasing but, if contextualized within the inclusive system that has characterized the Italian system for more than forty years, they are still too significant. School policies, cultures and practices have the task of growing to allow every diversity to be recognized and every difference to be promoted. The challenges of basic training of teachers, integrated planning of the class and educational care are possible areas for investment.
