Out of context? The effect of deep-rooted cultural traits on the transition to adulthood among the Italian second generations in France
Roberto Impicciatore, Università degli Studi di Milano
Relevant differences emerge between Italian G2 and autochthones, in particular among women and cohorts born after the Second World War. Therefore, our results are in contrast with the hypothesis that the familistic perspective is entirely due to the Welfare and the institutional setting. On the other hand, they indicate the persistence of deep-rooted cultural developed in Italy during the parent’s childhood and transmitted to their children born and growth in a foreign country.
