The article starts from the debate about the change in citizenship that has been affecting the sociological and politological panorama in recent years and then moves on to ponder legal change and how slowly it takes place, compared to the rapid flow of migration, in a perspective that combines elements of legal formalism and sociological realism, investigating the differences between the "literal" inter-pretation of the law (as expressed by national and supra-national legal orders) and its "material" enforcement. In addition, there is a discussion about the advisability of amending the Italian legislation governing rights of citizenship in order to adapt it to society’s new make-up - as has been called for from many sides - maintaining a great deal in terms of (democratic and egalitarian) spirit, but bringing about deci-sive changes in terms of substance. Finally, the author hypothesises an at least minimal explanation of the reasons why Italian law is so slow in adopting the sig-nificant stimuli for change coming from the real world.
