Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the survey that has been recently planned and carried out on a representative sample of young Italian people between 16 and 29, chosen in order to mirror the distribution of the national population of that age according to the main sociodemographic, environmental and cultural variables. Comparing the outcomes of the present survey with those predominating in the research concerning the young, many similarities emerge, but also not a few novelties. Analysing a range of professional and life choices, most young people acknowledge they involve different levels of vocation. To be called and to choose: the two dimensions meet in the conviction that vocation responds to the deepest nature of the individual, to what allows one to be oneself to the greatest extent and to be able to offer a social contribution of some relevance.
