In this essay we intend to develop a reflection which, starting from a conceptual clarification of the term "active elderly", highlights the implications for social policies and signals their empirical evidence through the presence of cation of some results emerged from a recent survey conducted in Italy on this topic1, with particular reference to the voluntary membership participation that characterizes this segment of the population.
