The empirical analyses and in-depth studies on volunteering in Italy and Europe are well developed. We are witnessing an acceleration of dynamics that could already be seen emerging in the previous decade. An all-encompassing volunteering, increasingly capable of radiating strength and energy into every sector of our collective life. Increasingly effective, but also more demanding in terms of time and skills. Which engages few people, few young people, and which is more and more time consuming for those who are engagedd. Based on small, highly cohesive groups that engage positively and synergistically with problems, volunteering has recently been studied from multiple angles and perspectives, not least for the skills it develops, and for its ability to reduce inequalities in political participation. The pandemic, however, has made two major tensions more evident than ever, that relating to problems of conventions' transmission and that relating to sociality.
