The misunderstanding between generations has always existed, certainly today the distance is so wide that we think we are facing an anthropological ‘mutation’. Many emerging phenomena seem to make this gap even bigger and bigger. One recurring feature seems to be the difficult encounter between young people and adults, which is nevertheless one of the cornerstones of any educational relationship. We would therefore like to listen to different voices that on the one hand enable us to better understand what is happening to us, and on the other help us ask the right questions, reminding us that today, more than ever, we need educating communities, instead what we see is around is just more isolation and loneliness.
