    Abstract

    This chapter describes a field study conducted in chinatown in Milan, Italy. By using the ethnographic method, this paper aims to explore both young Asians subculture and their everyday life in this urban space. The chinese district in Milan can be defined as "one large and condensed contact zone in which borders and ethnic boundaries are blurred and where processes of hybridization are rife inevitably because groups of different backgrounds, ethnic and otherwise, cannot help but enter into relations with each other, no matter how great the desire for separateness and the attempt to maintain cultural purity" (Ang. 2001, p.89)
