The study proposes the results of a research that identifies and compares styles and attitudes of participation among young people and how they were influenced before and after the lockdown lived in Italy in 2020. Data collected made it possible to outline a profile of participatory styles obtained from multiple correspondence analysis. Three groups are identified from inactive people to active people up to enterprising one. It is observed that participation grows in relation to the level of education. These styles are correlated to different opinions: the inactive group is closer to a populism culture, while enterprising group is closer to a cosmopolitan culture. After the first lockdown, the questionnaire was repurposed to the same young people to verify if the attitudes observed previously were changed. It was possible to recompose the three groups, which however have differences: involvement increases among active youth, while it tends to decrease among inert youth
