The aim of this essay is to discuss the following question: what is the role of public libraries in the process of constitution, preservation and diffusion of identity referentials in the contemporary world? Firstly, we are approaching the various aspects of cultural belonging in post modernity and then we are analyzing the relation between the concepts of memory and social identity. Eventually, we are discussing the possible contribution of public libraries, considered here as "places of memory", to the process of constitution, preservation and diffusion of identity speeches in post modernity
