This paper aims to analyse the social life of the Italian-Levantine communities of Turkey. Their Catholic common faith and the relation with Italy were, in fact, behind the policies undertaken in Turkey in the Twenties of last century by the Italian government. The author, through a study of new sources, tries to understand how and in which way the Catholic identity contributed in the affiliation to the Turkish branch of the Italian National Fascist Party. Similarly, this paper explores Ankara’s policies towards the minority groups and the foreign communities living in Turkey, in order to better understand how those policies determined the alienation of the Italian-Levantine communities in the country
