The road toward the foundation of a necessary inter-ethnic civilization imposes us to build the meeting among each men’s experiences. In this regard it is important, in our opinion, to refer to the concept of “migrant”, particularly as “reserve of sense.” The idea of “migrant” really can open, in terms of meta-cultural, new change of sense. Through the philosophy of Waldenfels we can imagine the migrant as being of border in the proposition of a pathos looking for answer, that is lent again to the dimension of the threshold of attention in a redefinition of a new type of intra-culturalism from the distinction between the “need” and “demand”. The need of the different experiences of the migrant hides unexpressed question on our existential condition. As Dal Lago wrote, “the immigration more than every other phenomenon, is able of to reveal the nature of the society so-called of reception. When we speak about immigrants, we talk about ourselves in relationship to the immigrants”. Now is the time of passage from inter-culture to “intra-culture” as dialogue between cultures in the space of the meeting.
