The essay presents some results of an ethnographic survey conducted in Palermo (Sicily) in a host community for unaccompanied foreign minors, focusing on the collective imaginary of the sea that a group of migrant minors from South Africa in-corporated during their travels. It highlights, from an ethno-historical perspective, the oral narratives and life stories collected during the symbolic-liminal passage through the Mediterranean sea. The re-elaboration of time and space in the boat correlates to the “bodies of water” as a possible contribution to the prospective discourse on trau-ma, exclusion, survival of separated children.
