Summary/Abstract: The subject of discussion is the creative revitalization of the disadvantaged circles, which consists in the activation and integration through creative activities, social, educational and cultural management. The study quotes specific examples of socializing, ludic, developmental, and creative initiatives. An important part of this work are case studies proving that contact with art and culture opens an individual’s mind to push their own boundaries in the quest for a perfect formula of personal existence. It is difficult to name the variables that are crucial here, but given the complex context of such activities, it seems that the key element in this process is to inspire an individual’s need for self assurance (hubristic need), which “triggers” transgressive tendencies.
