The article explores some strategies of the new internal regime of «frontierization» for the asylum seeker. Indeed, extending from the entry into the Reception System up to the inclusion in the Register of Resident Population, these strategies are increasingly configured as devices of spatial, social and administrative control. In detail, the analysis will illustrate how, through the use of these devices, the exceptionality of the juridical condition of asylum seeker – always reversible «until proven otherwise» – has been transformed once and for all into an «ordinary» condition of suspension of fundamental rights, thus increasing the risks of blackmail and dependence of the migrant from the actors who govern and manage the reception system.
