For this purpose they were interviewed 252 participants (aged between 6 and 12 years) using a procedure that allows you to detect - in relation to each of the studied forms of identity - mode of self-categorization, relative importance and degree of identification. The data show that European identity becomes relevant 12 years, the Regional 9, while the national and local identities are since 6 years. The results are discussed in a socio-evolutionary perspective, examining the implications in terms of educational interventions
