Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Starting from an analysis of the health experiences that migrants have, before, during and after the migration process, the article intends to shed light on the quieter aspects linked to the sense of well-being of people who have experienced a movement of detachment from their origins and integrate into a new context. Migration, in fact, as a difficult and traumatic experience, can risk paying attention simply to survival, to being-in-life, hiding "existential" needs and resources that are also "vital" for the complete health of the subject. If we consider that the experience of health is subjective and is built on a cultural level, it is necessary to investigate and take into consideration in the care of the subject both the cognitive and emotional aspects, and the contextual factors as well as the relational, the bodily and sensory ones that they involve the person in his integrity. Study paths and experiences are taken into consideration aimed at enhancing informal areas of education and care: access to cultural heritage as a tool to promote social integration and personal well-being, the involvement of migrants in the care of collective contexts (gardens , spaces, etc ...) allows to underline the importance of preserving the sense of beauty and to take care of the search for meaning of migrants, through artistic and creative educational and assistance paths.
