The roots represent the metaphor of a sense of belonging that goes beyond the physical presence in the country of origin. The growing attention to root tourism withnesses the importance recognized to the need for identity and rootedness, in-creasingly felt in a highly mobile and interconnected world. The research entitled "Returning home. The return trips of Albanians residing in Puglia ", is an exploratory survey centered on the tourism of the roots of these subjects from a country that has a very peculiar history of emigration. Through the realization of semi-structured interviews, the reasons for the migratory experience, their sense of be-longing, the frequency and the representations that the subjects heard of the return journey have been investigated. The analysis of the interview protocols made it possible to identify a typology with three voices: nostalgics, double citizens, mel-ancholies, only Italians.
Keywords: Albania; roots tourism; identity; migration; journey.
