Abstract

The paper focuses on the contribution of high level education to intergenerational social mobility estimating the persistence of inequality of chance, due to ascribed status more than to achived one. More than 75% of graduates interviewed experimented an increasing educational mobility in comparison with their parents, therefore attending academic studies works – from a cultural point of view - as a social lift for a very high number of young people; this dynamic has really reduced, during last decades, the ascribed transmission of educational status, even if the latter remain still prevalent observing the highest professional status.
