Attachment to place was explored in the context of residential history of people. Data have been collected trough self-administered questionnaires submitted to couples living in a number of Air Force villages in Italy. The results show that, even among mobile population, feelings of attachment toward the current place of residence and/or previous places are expressed by the majority of respondents. Furthermore, people with multiple bonds are the most satisfied of their life. Finally, feeling emotionally tied to a previous place does not mean necessarily being willing to live there, suggesting that a careful definition of attachment to place is needed. The results will be presented and discussed, together with their implications for a more comprehensive theory of affective bonds with places.
