[Autom. eng. transl.] The revisiting process that has affected the conception of poverty since the last decades of the last century, leading to the affirmation of the notion of social exclusion, is characterized primarily by its arrival at a multidimensional perspective: poverty is defined as a phenomenon that involves a plurality of areas of personal experience (health, education, housing, etc.), and not exclusively the economic-material sphere. In this framework, the web of connections and contacts in which people are inserted is configured as a fundamental dimension of the personal conditions of deprivation or well-being. The consideration of the circle of interpersonal relationships, and of the resources that this can convey, assumes a fundamental importance in the understanding of the risks and trajectories of impoverishment as well as in the elaboration of strategies for preventing and combating poverty. It therefore becomes very appropriate to master the theoretical instrumentation that in recent times, in the field of social sciences, has been progressively developed to support the analysis of networks and relational resources of individuals as well as the methodology of social networking and community work . The contribution focuses in particular on the notions of network, social capital and social support
