The paper aims to enlighten the social relationships and what they generate in daily life of people and communities, offering a sociological framework to contextualize relational processes that involve community subjects. Our time is not only the time of individual closure, but also that of new ways of sharing life expressing, proper to contemporaneity, the persistence of community bonds. Therefore it is important to understand the processes according to which social bonds are established. In order to observe and understand the social sphere of the community, which is constantly changing, we need interpretative categories able to explain the morphogenesis of the phenomenon. Two of these are communitarian relations and their social generativity: they offer a scientific background for rethinking Community, its relations and its forms of belonging. The objective is to grasp whether, and under which circumstances, the communitarian relations are able to really generate a social wellbeing. Sociological approaches presented in the paper reveal that the more communitarian relations are able to individuate potential effective synergies among diverse social actors, the more they contribute at promoting forms of social generativiy in diverse contexts. There is a correlation between social generativity and communitarian relations: the society can take advantage of this connection, as services and good practices provided, keep on growing internally. In these processes, which are situated on a meso level, several immaterial realities take shape, communitarian relations included, as discriminating factors for achieving a good quality of life by individual subjects and by intersubjective environments. The complex relational intertwinement among community relations and providing services makes it possible to strengthen community ties with other social subjects, as a contemporary ways to build forms of mutual trust, cooperation, and reciprocity. Furthermore, in these processes of intersection we can observe a sort of spiral that raises the level of the social generativiy circulating in these relational circuits
