Abstract

The chapter presents the results of a longitudinal survey among 378 young Italian adults who were interviewed in late 2019 and fall 2020. In between these two time periods is the outbreak of the pandemic. It reports the changes and similarities that emerged in relation to perceptions of the difficulties associated with family formation, the explanations related to these perceptions, and finally the helps that young people desire in order to be supported in family formation. In general, perceptions of the difficulties of having a family in the future did not change due to the pandemic, although there were some internal shifts within the sample. In their comments, young Italians reported reasons that go beyond the economic/work sphere. They highlighted a more multifaceted picture than that previously published in the research. This picture is linked to the presence of individualism, lack of social support and a generalized sense of disorientation.
