F.M. Lo Verde, Leisure time and the construction of social capital: a review The production of social capital in a specific area of everyday life such as leisure time and the different socio-cultural contexts it is experienced in is a very interesting research issue, especially in the light of certain specific meanings of the notion of social capital, such as Bourdieu’s or, more recently, Putnam’s. Nonetheless, this research issue is scarcely taken into consideration in Italy. Albeit inexaustively, this paper intends to introduce this issue starting from a brief review on the generation of social capital in youth’s leisure time contexts. In the first paragraph I problematize the notion of social capital as referred to leisure time “contexts” as well as analyze either the social capital literature dealing with the modes and experiences of leisure time, or the leisure time literature focusing on the construction of social capital in leisure time contexts. In the second paragraph I discuss some studies regarding the ways in which a particular age range – youth – produces social capital in leisure time contexts. In the third paragraph I focus on some studies regarding the issue of youth’s leisure time as a potential “antisocial” time. In the fourth paragraph I introduce the discussion about the little importance given to public leisure in the service provision for youth’s leisure time and the consequences determined by that in terms of social capital «erosion». The conclusion offers three metaphors for understanding the trends of leisure time and sociability. Key words: leisure studies; leisure time, Social capital

Non solo «quel che resta del giorno»... Un’analisi comparativa del consumo di tempo libero in Europa digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2009 - 4
Anno: 2009
The aim of this paper is to draw attention to the role of leisure studies in social change analysis and in comparative sociology studies. In the first part of the paper, we briefly review the main definitions of leisure time. Then we focus on methodological problems related to comparative analysis on leisure time use. In the second part, we compare the structure of leisure time in different european countries studying some analogies and differences among them. Eurostat data constitute the empirical basis of this comparative analysis. In the third part, we underline that counting «who does something», «how often people do something», «in which period of the day, of the week, of the month or of the year people do something» and «how much time people spend to do something» just isn’t enough for studying leisure time. Therefore, new questions should be asked: what does leisure mean in individual experiences? And how does leisure time become «institutionalized» in shared social practices? Then, an appropriate method is proposed to answer these questions. Key words: leisure time, social change, comparative analysis.

Sociologia del leisure. Un'introduzione digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2009 - 1
Anno: 2009
In most of Western countries, leisure studies have a rather consolidated tradition. Although still considered somehow marginal, this area of study has collected a number of researches and theoretical reflections that are both quantitatively and qualitatively significant. In Italy instead, even if some studies have been conducted, especially in the last thirty years, research appears quite fragmentary. This study intends to focus either on the relevance of leisure time as an object of study for sociologists or on the results leisure studies have attained so far. In particular, looking at the current literature, I shall focus on the different meanings of leisure as well as on the sociological aspects of this important «finite province of meaning». The study ends with a reflection on the characteristics of leisure in contemporary society.
