Pursuing the theoretical objective of contributing to the debates on citizenship and solidarity in a more inclusive sense, the article jointly analyses the concepts of citi-zenship from below and solidarity from below by applying them to the empirical analysis of a particular practice of solidarity promoted from below by migrants in alliance with citizens during the Covid-19 pandemic in the city of Naples. The em-pirical material used is the result of long-term ethnographic research on the social and political participation of migrants in the city of Naples. By building networks of transversal relationships and alliances, migrants and citizens have created a form of inclusive solidarity, capable of challenging and circumventing structures of exclusive solidarity, transgressing the boundaries of the social and political community, and redefining belonging. In particular, I will show how this practice of solidarity has been able to question and transform citizenship, challenging, modifying and renewing the ways in which the subjects involved have defined themselves and acted as citizens, enhancing their social relations. The analysis of the acts of solidarity produced by the alliance of migrants and citizens can provide an extension of the theory of acts of citizenship and represent the starting point for reflecting in an innovative and more inclusive way on solidarity, alliances, membership, borders and citizenship.
Keywords: citizenship from below; inclusive solidarity; transversal alliance; acts of citizenship; migrant associations; Covid-19.
