Summary/Abstract: The existential crisis, which always followed the age of maturation and development, has been deepened by nihilism which the Italian philosopher and psychologist Umberto Galimberti, following Nietzsche, calls “an unpleasant guest who penetrates their feelings, blurs their thoughts, wipes their perspectives and horizons, weakens the soul, deprives their passions making them bloodless”. Today, young people do not feel included, but excluded from reality. We live in a world of technics and technology which does not offer the truth, it merely functions. In the age of maturation, young people need recognition, and if they do not get it in the right place, it is offered to them in places where “drugs and sexuality” or “cruel rites” rule. We wanted to search an answer to the question “Quo vadis, iuvenis?” (Where are you going, young man?)
