Abstract

The article shows some researches about informal groups of teenagers meeting mainly on the streets or in public places. In these gatherings you can find some risk factors that can lead to unease and deviance manifestations. After a distinction of the most important typologies of young groups, beginning also from a reference to subcultural theories, the article determines in the «communicative function» (that in this case has a structure of frequentation) the main feature of this phenomenon. From this point of view, you can suppose that the juvenile gathering answers mainly to a need of reproducing communication among their peers and with the external environment. Communication is a practice that builds a group's identity and guides its running. In this sense, also the possible deviance, and, broadly speaking, conflict born from these groups show essentially a need of reproducing and keeping communication between oneself and the others alive. Deviance, in the particular context of complex society, appears as an artificial way of reproducing communication.
