Abstract

The present work is a preliminary and explorative study and is part of a wider research project on Egyptian, Pakistani and Moroccan families living in Northern Italy. In particular, it analyses qualitatively the experiences of a few first-generation Egyptian migrants (No.4) and second-generation adolescents of Egyptian origin (No.14) who have been living in Italy for at least two years following family reunion practices. By outlining the respondents’ practices and values and comparing them, the paper proposes to show how the immigrant second-generationers live transnationally, build their identities, acquire social skills, shape cultural repertoires and selectively deploy them in response to the opportunities and challenges they face.
