program

The primary aim of this research is to analyse the modern issue of “new migrations” in the circuit of young generations from European countries. The originality of this project lies in the belief that further and critical aspects of the issue can be focused looking just at the opposite “sides” of the European scenery. In the context of the European Union, Italy and Finland show a good range of differences concerning mentality, working experiences, economy, history, welfare state and, not last, conception of moving and travelling. In this sense, they can be described as “two opposite poles” of the European setting, and for this reason they were chosen as an original prospective for the topic. Obviously these differences are especially significant when considering new generations.
