The contribution was born from the desire of the authors to emphasize the role of a "reciprocating prosociality" in predicting inclusiveness and social cohesion. The "reciprocating prosociality" means to put in action bidirectional and circular behaviors, by ensuring the conditions in which who receives a benefit is also able to "reciprocate". This is what has been experienced by the authors in an ongoing project carried out in collaboration with other volunteers working with extremely marginalized homeless people in Rome. The authors are engaged in "bringing research questions on these issues on the street , in order to begin to grasp answers from the people’s narratives and build relationships that can generate a responsible and cohesive "living-together".
Keywords: Social inclusion, social cohesion, reciprocating prosociality, extreme marginality, responsible living together, social support networks.
