This book takes its place in the current sociological debate on "second generations". This concept presents definitional problems that evoke deeper issues linked to the dual cultural belonging of these young people. The book is divided into two parts. The first examines theoretical and empirical aspects relating to "second-generation" young people and their pathways to identity construction and political participation, which are strongly marked by their lack of recognition as citizens, the discrimination they suffer and the feelings of exclusion they experience. In the second part, a qualitative-quantitative analysis is carried out (with the support of the T-Lab software) of a corpus extracted from forty-two in-depth interviews with second-generation young people aged between 18 and 30 and living in seven Italian cities (Palermo, Cagliari, Rome, Bologna, Milan, Turin and Padua), carried out within the framework of the European project "Beyond. Counter-narratives from the margins to the centre".
