Based on extensive ethnographic fieldwork in the Italian city of Turin, the chapter is an ethnography of homelessness and its biopolitical construction in the city. It presents narratives around the construction and management of the homeless poor by faith-based and secular institutions in the city and discusses asylum seekers’ cases. The chapter shows how the functions of expulsion and extraction are not only foundational of home but also the geographies populating its other.
