This chapter explains the methodological, thematic, and theoretical aspects of the present study. It introduces the municipality of Castelvolturno, north of Naples, where the study was conducted, and describes the racism encountered by the West African immigrants who live there. The study focuses on a group of twenty to twenty-five young men from Senya Beraku, Ghana. Later, the group was expanded to include young Ghanaian men from the town of Winneba with whom the fishermen of Senya Beraku had close contact and often shared rooms or apartments. The chapter also discusses the entry of undocumented immigrants into Italy and immigrants' dependence on the underground economy.
