This contribution is structured in four sections: 1) A theoretical part, which briefly reports on the path undertaken to arrive at the definition of socially integrated consumption; 2) An empirical part, where the result of some recent research performed in the region of Emilia Romagna is discussed; those results offer further discussions and ideas; 3) A reflection on how the economic crisis is altering the market and consumer behaviour; 4) A proposal for new prevention models.
