The article explores the most common concepts in the theory of youth. Based on recent international literature, it shows how the concept of age, social class, deviant behaviour, life style are social constructions often used to analize youth, while a more interdisciplinary and intercultural analysis of the phenomenon is needed. Youth cannot be reduced in general definitions, for the increasing importance of individualization and individual biography. Consumer culture and life style are useful concepts if they are considered as a language people use to express themselves, a symbolic code with which young people negotiate self image depending on the context they relate to. The importance of image can be viewed also in peer groups, although in some cases the style is not anymore the key of access (like mohican hairstyle for punk) but becomes an individual choice, without the role of marks of belonging.
