Young people between dreams and needs (1994)
The aim of this work is to focus on the crucial junctures in the condition of young people, laying bare the various problems and highlighting the most significant trends. The survey covers social, political and cultural areas ranging from school education to unemployment, from criminal behaviour to opinions on crime, from cultural consumption to xenophobia, from small identities to marginalised groups.
For each of these dimensions, an attempt has been made to draw some interpretative lines based on the collected data from field surveys and opinion polls, in order to reconstruct a picture as exhaustive as possible of the current condition of young people in Italy and its repercussions on the political, social and cultural fabric of the country.
