This study explores the quality of Italian host-immigrant intercultural relations in three pivotal (mindset, family and religion) and three peripheral (school, economic habits and friendships/relationships) acculturation fields of adolescent life, via the use of Navas' recontextualized Relative Acculturation Extended Model (RAEM). Discords both at intergroup and intrapersonal analysis level forecast adversarial intercultural relations rather in pivotal than in peripheral fields.
