TechnoYouth and participation, the risk to base your business on a product that is slipping in the most advanced countries - Young generations identify less than in the past with traditional participation structures. However, this does not mean that they are not interested in politics. In this essay, the Author analyses some questions emerged in Sotto V(u)oto. Giovani e assenti la generazione invisibile (Milandri, 2008). The qualitative research on the age of uncertainty dealt with in this book was carried out in the Republic of San Marino in 2008. The essay is imbued with the effect of population ageing, absence of young people in the social and political life and loss of social solidarity but the focus is on the young people’s needs and youth policies intersecting two perspectives: that of a group of adults, and that of a group of young people. The result is an unusual and lively representation of young people through an interesting exchange of views. The outlined situation shows the human face of a place where needs want to be once again at the centre of policies. The end is a ‘homage’ to the future that wants to be listened to with Mr Giorgio Chiaruzzi, Chairman of the Youth Forum.
