Abstract [it]

Questa è la storia di un’antica casa situata a Nuoro, una piccola città nel centro della Sardegna, Italia. In questa casa, che ho conosciuto da quando sono arrivata a Nuoro, nella primavera del 2010, una stessa famiglia ha vissuto per almeno cinque generazioni. Fin dal primo momento in cui sono entrata ho sentito fortemente che la casa e i suoi abitanti sono una cosa sola e hanno creato una atmosfera molto aperta e amichevole [1]. In questo articolo il mio scopo è quello di mostrare questo processo continuamente in corso. Sono le voci dei membri della famiglia che verranno ascoltate, così che ciò che segue è una storia basata empiricamente sulla stretta relazione tra una particolare famiglia e la loro casa; scriverò dunque di vita sociale, di memoria e, soprattutto, del sentimento di appartenenza. «Gli edifici, come le poesie e i riti, sostanziano le culture» (Glassie 2000:17).

Abstract [en]

At the beginning of the 21stcentury Nuoro, capital of the province with the same name situated in the Barbagia district, central Sardinia, has approximately 37 000 inhabitants. At the previous turn of the century it had roughly 7 000 inhabitants. In spite of its then smallness as well as relative isolation due to its inland position, the town gave birth to several authors, poets, painters, sculptors, and other intellectuals who were to become widely known in the years to follow, thus Nuoro’s denomination as Athens of Sardinia. In this article I will present the most renowned of these personalities, before taking the reader on a fictive walk through the town in order to give further evidence of its extraordinarily rich and lively culture. I then intend to show that in spite of its richness culture does not in any way drive out the love and respect for nature among the Nuoresi[i]as has often been demonstrated to be the case in other parts of South Italy. Thus, this article’s subtitle Culture and Nature instead of the more commonly used ‘culture versus nature’ when pointing at the dichotomy between the two domains.

[i] Plural of nuorese meaning from Nuoro.

Abstract [it]

La ricerca antropologica condotta in una comunità di pescatori della Sicilia occidentale ha permesso di metterein luce il modo in cui le famigUe nucleari matrifocaB si inseriscono in ben precise e piu estese reti relazionali gUidate da maschi. La centralita della posizione della Madre a livello della famiglia nucleare e in questo modo bilanciata e it sistema generale cosi ottenuto dimostra, contrariamente a quanta spesso sostenuto per questo tipo di struttura familiare, che l'unita madrefiglio/a non è in grado di funzionare efficacemente per conto suo. Come risultato di valori morali dominanti cbe sottolineano in modo preponderante l'unicita della famiglia edei parenti, gli individui sono portati a dipendere fortementedalle rispettive reti parentali e a dar loro il proprio incondizionato sostegno. Essi percepiscono sé stessi in primo luogo come elementi di queste unita sociali e solo secondariamente come individui chiaramente definiti e indipendenti, do che non fa che sottolineare la distinzione tra parenti e non-parenti. La dipendenza verso il gruppo famiHare e inoltre rafforzatadal fattochela matti-e/o patrivicinita e la forma dominante di residenza, dal sistema tradizionale di denominazione, cosi come dall'uso continue di termini di parentela e dalla stretta collaborazione e socializzazione che vige tra parenti. I limiti sia fisiciche sociali cosi creati sono ulteriormente rafforzati clall'architettura locale, che segnalasimbolicamente l'importanza del gruppo familiare ben drcoscritto, dalla posizione della donna, che incarna la famiglia e la dimora familiare e i cui movimenti all'esterno sono ben delimitati al fine cli proteggere sia se stessa che la propria famiglia, da un'arte deB'autocontrollo, che si esprime nel valutare e misurare attentamente le proprie azioni e le proprie parole per essere in grado di centrollare le impressioni fatte sugli altri e, infine, cia un campanilismo che distingue e separa i compaesani dai forestied. L'ospitalita, incentrata su inclusione ecl esclusione, si dimostra mezzo per incorporare ritualmente i non-parenti e controllare cosi il pericolo potenziale rappresentato dallo straniero.

L'autrice cerea di rispondere alia domanda se i limiti fisici e sociali creati attomo alia rete familiare, in combinazione coo. la generale diffidenza verso i ron-parenti espressa dagli stessi informatori, costituiscono un ostacolo maggiore alIa collahorazione con chi non ne fa parte, oppure se collaborare at cli la cli questi limiti è passibile, e in questo caso se tale collaborazione indebolisca la centralita della famiglia.

Abstract [en]

Place is here defined as a space given social, cultural and historical meaning through an ongoing intervention of people who are objects as well as subjects within this process. Thus place can be seen as a continuously ongoing process of (re)creation by those who live it. This essay intends to set out and illustrate parts of this process.

Fieldwork was carried out in Monte, the fictive name of a small village situated about an hour's drive from Rome, Italy. In order to show how place may be used as an analytical concept, three different ways in which this particular local (re)creation process takes place will be presented, followed by a theoretical discussion. The first example comes from Montese social life, the second from the village cemetery and the last comes from the yearly pilgrimages dedicated to the local patron saint.

Abstract [en]

Anthropological data from fieldwork carried out among a fishing population in western Sicily show how related matrifocal nuclear families are tightly knit within larger, male-headed networks. The mother focus at the basic family level is thereby balanced and the system indicates that the mother-child unit does not function effectively on its own, as has often been argued for this type of family structure. As a result of dominating moral values which strongly emphasise the uniqueness of family and kin, people are brought up to depend heavily upon and to be loyal to their kin networks, to see themselves primarily as parts of these social units and less so as independent clearly bounded individuals, and to distinctly separate family members from non-family members. This dependence is further strengthened by matri- and/or patrivicinity being the dominant form of locality, by the traditional naming system as well as a continual use of kin terms, and by related people socialising and collaborating closely. The social and physical boundaries thus created around the family networks are further strengthened by local architecture that symbolically communicates the closed family unit; by the woman, who embodies her family as well as their house, having her outdoor movements restricted in order to shield both herself and her family; by self-mastery when it comes to skilfully calculating one's actions and words as a means of controlling the impression one makes on others; and by local patriotism that separates one's co-villagers from foreigners. Hospitality, which brings inclusion and exclusion into focus, is shown to be a means of ritually incorporating non-kin and thus containing the danger the stranger represents.

The author aims to answer the question of whether the social and physical boundaries around the family network, together with the distrust towards non-family members referred to by the informants themselves, constitute a hindrance as regards collaboration with non-kin, or if collaboration beyond the family boundaries is possible and, if so, whether or not this has to lead to the family's losing its position.
