Le metafore della bulimia - The topic of this contribution is a sociological analysis of the celiac disease under a perspective which try to overcome the traditionally perspective of illness, considering the impact on the relationships connected to the aspects of socialization referred to dining together. The attention is focused in particular to some phases of the life, when the socialization is made even sitting at the table, in collective rites of eating pizza or pasta all together. From here the necessity of considering a dimension that allows to gather the uneasiness and the social damages connected to the illness: especially because it doesn’t need a care in the traditional sense of the term (differently from other autoimmune illnesses like the diabetes, the autoimmune thyroiditis or the psoriasis, in the case of the celiac disease is "enough" to follow a free-gluten diet). Celiac disease deprives the celiac of relational occasions, which could have played an important role in the accumulation of social capital.

Key-words: celiac disease, give social, food intolerances, life stories, disease, illness.

Parole-chiave: celiachia, danno sociale, intolleranze alimentari, racconti di vita, disease, illness.
