Abstract

Western civilization achieved a social order founded on the separation of individuals with similar characteristics (adults, children and, in the services for children, further separation by age, ills, elderly people concentrated in dedicated buildings ...), reducing to invisibility and silence a huge crowd of people. These include the elderly and children, confined in an orderly manner in "social containers", or disorderly pushed at the margins of society and sociality. This leads to a dispersion of knowledge and resources that the individual suffers as the entire community. Conversely areas of contamination and sharing for people with different origins demographic, generational, cultural backgrounds, create the conditions to grow the attention that mutual education, social policy, human services should help to promote. This assay introduces the experience of the Centre in Piacenza for Elderly and Children (ABI: Anziani e Bambini Insieme). This is a complex and composite service, with separated and common areas for guests of three connected structures: a retirement home, a day care centre and a kindergarden.
