The paper will present an experiment implemented by the Municipality of Bologna with the engagement of part of the residential public housing sector (ERP). The project consisted on testing a form of social mix that was based on populations with different needs and resources but a hard housing problem in common. The aim of the project was favoring the creation of social ties and neighborhood attachment, in order to subvert the territorial stigma that sometimes affects ERP settlements. This social mix proposal assumed that many resources are available within housing problems, and these resources are just waiting to be properly recognized and valued.
Keywords: Housing problems, public housing, social mix, community enhancement, territorial stigma, social ties.
