[Autom. eng. transl.] The Third sector has long been a fundamental component of Italian and European society (Osborne 2008; Anheier, Rossi, Boccacin (eds.) 2008; Archer 2010). Sociological reflection has contributed, in the last decades, to clarify its strengths and weaknesses naturally in close connection with historical time and with the social situation of reference (Donati & Colozzi 2004; 2006; Boccacin 1993; Rossi & Boccacin 2006a; 2011; 2012; Alecci & Bottaccio 2010). A significant fact of all: the fact that a Third Sector reform was launched represents a sort of litmus test of the social importance of this area, its widespread distribution on a national level, the importance of its defining systematization and organizational, as well as a generalized social observability of its peculiarities, of the competences that circulate in this sector, of the contribution that comes from it to the common good.
