The text explores the interaction between home making – the social construction process of the domestic sphere – and house building – the actual building of a house, which is full of significance – based on a dense ethnographic experience with the families and their living places, in Romania and Italy. Moving from Appadurai’s perspective of the local dimension as the repertoire of the conditions of possibility, it has been possible to show that home making and house building practices reveal the conditions of ‘possibility’ experienced by those people and represent at the same time an action aiming for the fulfilment of ‘imaginable’ and ‘desirable’ futures.

Abstract

The text explores the interaction between home making – the social construction process of the domestic sphere – and house building – the actual building of a house, which is full of significance – based on a dense ethnographic experience with the families and their living places, in Romania and Italy. Moving from Appadurai’s perspective of the local dimension as the repertoire of the conditions of possibility, it has been possible to show that home making and house building practices reveal the conditions of ‘possibility’ experienced by those people and represent at the same time an action aiming for the fulfilment of ‘imaginable’ and ‘desirable’ futures.
