[automatically translated] In this issue of the Journal the goal is to focus on one of the many family configurations of our present whose well-founded intercultural variability makes it more likely, and if we also want to be desirable, the encounter with the Other already in relationships. Combination or binational couple is the result of a multiplicity of anthropological background, psychological, cultural, economic and political which together redirect omogame trends in ethnic groups but so too uneven to each other. As in the relationship between cultures, intercultural dialogue can also be inhibited by the present some reality as homogeneous, static and impermeable boundaries (Mazzara, 2010). Among the contributions, the first presents a journey through the definitional problems of what literature is meant to be understood and, currently, with mixed couple, to see more closely, in the second contribution, the dynamics that mark the life cycle. Following three research grants, one has a transnational comparison Italy-Spain on the issues of identity in relation to the sense of community partners, historically expensive to construct community psychology; the other, an attack in the Sicilian local reality, highlights the meanings that couples attribute to their daily lives, to neighborhood relations and issues concerning the education of children; third contribution of research, with an essentially qualitative approach scrutinizes mixed marriages in Andalusia which another building intercultural scenario. In closing a critical look to European policies in place, even stunted in recognizing a specificity of issues related to mixed couples; and a confident look to those local entities that in several European countries, in the absence of community policies, fielded initiatives, services, projects, often generated from below and supported by associative movements at the forefront on this front.
