    (English) The recognition of transnational practices of Moroccan immigrants shows that among the Moroccan community present in Rome such practices are quite widespread. We have pointed out that there is a continuous exchange between the latter and the home community. This exchange takes the form of economic exchange in the majority of cases. A more collective-oriented dimension is noticeable among the women interviewed that are interested in cultural and political aspects of transnational practices. They prefer to approach transnational practices with more institutional tools and they also tend to build up institutional networks. So the political objective of transnational practices expands the scope of the latter that surpasses the limits of family networks. (Italiano) La ricognizione delle pratiche transnazionali degli immigrati marocchini mostra che tra la comunità marocchina nella città di Roma tali pratiche sono abbastanza diffuse. Abbiamo rilevato l’esistenza di un continuo scambio tra questi ultimi e le comunità di origine. Tale scambio si presenta prevalentemente nella forma di scambio economico. Una dimensione maggiormente orientata alla collettività è più evidente tra le donne intervistate che sono maggiormente interessate agli aspetti culturali e politici delle pratiche transnazionali. Esse preferiscono seguire un approccio più istituzionale e tendono a costruire reti istituzionali. Di conseguenza, l’obiettivo politico amplia il raggio di attività di tali pratiche che superano i limiti delle reti familiari.
