ABSTRACT
This article deals with Yugoslav asylum seekers in Italy between 1955 and 1968, a time span particularly meaningful, due to the deep entanglement of political and economic push factors. In fact, even if Yugoslav asylum seekers were usually not characterized by a strong political background, they obtained a "political status" when applying for asylum, and often entered into contact with anti-Yugoslav organizations. For Yugoslav asylum seekers Italy - officially a country of fi rst asylum, together with Austria - represented a stop over in their transnational migration paths before embarking for overseas destinations or crossing the border illegally into other European states.
