The Roma, Sinti e Caminati, more than any other group who is at the margins of society can make to reflect on the question of integration. But what role does the Roma culture in this process? And what culture are we talking about? In an attempt to seize their "cultural approach" it tried to deconstruct the rigid image of identity that was sewn on them. They were made 30 indepth interviews with a group of Roma Messina involved in a project of integration of social housing promoted in 2011 by the Municipality and the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy. I integrated the collection of interviews with participant observation, so collecting data on the physical environment, the homes, the neighborhood and the space relationships of the members of the group Roma. The aim of the research was to understand how those involved perceive their own culture and values which give more importance. The result that has emerged is the existence of new interstices in which they are located that movement, that cultural change can generate integration.
