The aim is to understand of discrepancy between the cultural changes related to the redefinition of the citizen's role and practices aimed at promoting social well-being. For such purpose, seventy-three students' scripts were collected. Through thematic analysis, emerge the structuring dimensions of the local representation of living together and the various factors determining the construction of pro-social actions. A non-recognition of spaces for sharing and negotiation is underlined. In particular, the lack of trust that empowers constructive interdependence, functional to responsible co-living prevails.
