[Autom. eng. transl.] Recent research highlights the need to study blood donation as a process (Callero, Howard and Piliavin, 1987; Piliavin and Callero, 1991; Lee, Piliavin and Call, 1999; Ferguson, 1996, 2004). Understand the elements that can bring you closer to this gesture and those that can facilitate the start of the commitment and of fundamental importance so that the organizations can develop targeted and effective recruitment strategies. The interviews carried out with 48 blood donors belonging to Avis highlight the elements that have brought donors closer to this gesture: in addition to family members, friends or colleagues who are already donors, the interviews highlight the role of personal experiences, which have made donors aware of the need constant supply of adequate blood even in the Italian context. Among the elements that have facilitated the approach to the world of donation, the reception received at the time of the donation and having had adequate information on the donation gesture are priority elements. Finally, the donors highlight the trust in the organization they belong to as a transversal element at the beginning and the maintenance of the commitment.
