In Italy the Filipino immigration started during the Seventies and it became stabilized during the years (Annual Report, 2014) thanks to several factors that have bolstered their presence (Ambrosini & Buccarelli, 2009). Recently, after the increase of Filipino first generation nuclear families, the presence of Filipino second generation has risen (representing 21.5% of the entire community). Regarding these young people the double cultural belonging is a relevant question that involves complex dynamics of social identity’s (Tajfel, 1981) development. The aim of our study was to analyze the representational framework of a Filipino second generation’s group on: heritage and the Italian culture; perceived well-being; groups and identity dimensions. Data have been collected through the administration of a semistructured questionnaire in a face to face setting. Results pointed out a framework characterized by a reasonable tendency to biculturalism.
