Consumption behaviors, identity and working experience in contemporary society: a complex relation Following the suggestions of Codeluppi we find in the postmodern society a major difficulty in people biography to build their identity. This identity crisis is
not only an individual but a nation identity crisis. The postmodern society ties the identity question to that of consumption so that to purchase is in the same time to build pieces of identity. In spite of the increasing importance of consumptions in identity and social building, the author stress the work role as relevant mechanism both for production and consumption of identity. Therefore our society is focused on production and consumption. They live together, side by side, and it is important not polarize that two social forms.
