This article aims to analyze the relationship between sport, citizenship and social inclusion, experienced by young adults of immigrant origin, in Italy. Specifically, it will focus on the aspirations and paths of citizenship of young cricketers of Bangladeshi origin, living in the City of Venice. Starting from 15 in-depth interviews with these young adults, it emerges how the aspired Italian citizenship and, therefore, the European passport can become, on the one hand, a tool to react to the misrecognition, practiced by native peers and the fellow country-men of the generation of their parents, and, on the other hand, an access key for potential transnational mobility. In other words, the acquisition of Italian citizenship would be configured both as a path aimed at social inclusion at the local level, and as an attempt at distinction deployed at European and international level.

Abstract

This article aims to analyze the relationship between sport, citizenship and social inclusion, experienced by young adults of immigrant origin, in Italy. Specifically, it will focus on the aspirations and paths of citizenship of young cricketers of Bangladeshi origin, living in the City of Venice. Starting from 15 in-depth interviews with these young adults, it emerges how the aspired Italian citizenship and, therefore, the European passport can become, on the one hand, a tool to react to the misrecognition, practiced by native peers and the fellow country-men of the generation of their parents, and, on the other hand, an access key for potential transnational mobility. In other words, the acquisition of Italian citizenship would be configured both as a path aimed at social inclusion at the local level, and as an attempt at distinction deployed at European and international level.
