Abstract

In this paper I would like to show, through a case-study analysis, how political, legal, media topics about Roma people, in Italy,
are shaped by some negative believes and stereotypes. This frame lead to creating, in the common sense, the idea of danger that go
beyond real situation.The stereotype that I want to analyze – that is part of the elements that led to sentence for three Roma women over
last thirty years – is constituted by association of ideas between Roma woman and children’s kidnapper.
