This paper is the first part of a work that is committed to define bullying from structural and dynamic perspectives. In this part I will describe the main phenomenological characteristics of bullying: quantifying, peculiarity and key players. In the following parts, I will consider the different forms of bullying (victimology and application strategies), the short and longterm effects, the victim and the social setting in which bullying occurrs and the possible forms of preventive intervention and/or reduction of its effects.
