Following the perspective of Zygmunt Bauman and Umberto Eco, we are currently living in a liquid society, defined by extended dynamics, high mobility and perpetual social change both in terms of interaction and relationship models, but also in the configuration of structures and social systems. Solid modernity has remained behind with its anchoring in very well-defined and stable values over time, with its implicit predictability, and with the constant effort to discover the deepest meanings of social reality. It has been replaced by a fluid, volatile, experimental, interrogative, exhibitionist modernity that dares to change traditions, to search for new roads and to don’t stop from exploring alternatives. In order to understand this new form of aggregation of social space, there are necessary not only new methodological tools but also the wisdom of giving up certain mental patterns that are incompatible with contemporary liquidity.
