The production of social capital in a specic area of everyday life such as leisuretime and the dierent socio-cultural contexts it is experienced in is a very interesting researchissue, especially in the light of certain specic meanings of the notion of social capital, such asBourdieu's or, more recently, Putnam's. Nonetheless, this research issue is scarcely taken intoconsideration in Italy.Albeit inexaustively, this paper intends to introduce this issue starting from a brief reviewon the generation of social capital in youth's leisure time contexts. In the rst paragraph Iproblematize the notion of social capital as referred to leisure time "contexts" as well as analyzeeither the social capital literature dealing with the modes and experiences of leisure time, or theleisure time literature focusing on the construction of social capital in leisure time contexts. Inthe second paragraph I discuss some studies regarding the ways in which a particular age range- youth - produces social capital in leisure time contexts. In the third paragraph I focus onsome studies regarding the issue of youth's leisure time as a potential "antisocial" time. In thefourth paragraph I introduce the discussion about the little importance given to public leisurein the service provision for youth's leisure time and the consequences determined by that interms of social capital "erosion". The conclusion oers three metaphors for understanding thetrends of leisure time and sociability
