The migratory phenomenon to the EU in recent decades showed the weakness of integration models. On the social level it was not possible to rule a change of coexistence today improcrastinabile. Immigrant communities populate our cities, work, eat, meet, and they do not stop practicing their religious and cultural expressions of origin. What role plays the expression of differences, adaptation model, in the local integration processes? These dynamics have been analyzed in research carried out in Palermo, whose main results are presented in this paper.
