Chapter Summary

The research "Young People in Aosta Valley: social, cultural and religious belongings" reflects the condition of the young in Italy. This chapter illustrates the estrangement of the young inhabitants of the Valley of Aosta from religion or, even when they call themselves Catholic, from the religious practice. It demonstrates in what way, however, although the young go to church and attend the rites scarcely or discontinuously, religion still constitutes a cultural factor that is capable of influencing the personal configuration of the system of values strongly. The chapter explains how religion interacts with the system of values and the behaviours of the individuals influencing ideas, opinions, sociality, and behaviours. It focuses on the free research of meaning of these young people who make use of their forefathers' faith freely, integrating it with other sources, beliefs, suggestions, through a creative, mobile and personal research process.

Keywords: Aosta Valley; Catholic; Italian young people; religion; religious faith
