Venice, Italy


Young people constitute an ever dwindling share of the population of Venice. Our study established the quality of life factors most relevant to young Venetians as well as prevailing trends. It was observed that the relative importance of various factors changes drastically over time. Recreation was the most frequently discussed factor; however it was found that factors such as the social and community life and safety are of higher importance to youth when making migratory decisions. The dynamic interaction of various factors for the Venetian youth was also explored.
