Abstract

In order to analyse the contribution of the third sector in terms of services and practices, we need interpretative categories able to explain the morphogenesis of the phenomenon. Two of these are social capital and social partnerships. The conceptual framework based on these two key concepts offers a scientific background for a quantitative research carried out in 2009 in Italy, on 110 nationally-based associations of social promotion and multilevel organizations belonging to the third sector. The instrument was an online questionnaire including 92 variables. From a methodological point of view, synthetic indexes, cluster analysis and logistic regression were carried out the data. The final results of this investigation highlight particularly the capacity to create social capital, the differences between bonding and bridging social capital and the role and meaning of both within the associative sphere and in the production of activities and services. The presence of social capital stimulates an intensification of the social relationships and leads to weave community links. The third sector subjects can play different roles in the creation of such a resource
