Social capital and social partnerships are interpretative categories which offered a scientific background for a quantitative research study conducted in Italy on 110 nationally-based prosocial multilevel organisations. Empirical data show a significant correlation between the existence of social capital and the emergence of social partnerships. The final results of this inquiry highlight the capacity to create social capital, the differences between bonding and bridging social capital, and the role and meaning of both types of social capital within the associative sphere and in the production of services.
