[Autom. eng. transl.] During the emergency caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, families, especially those with minor children, were asked to make a fundamental contribution to the performance of various essential activities. In this private retreat, the willingness of families and their members to act for the common good and their optimistic vision of the future was influenced by the social support received from other social actors. The information on the support perceived by families at different macro and micro social levels (from the Government, from friend networks and from family members) was collected through a longitudinal research entitled `` The family at the time of Covid-19 '' (N = 2985 ), which took place at two different times of the pandemic period (T1 = March 2020, T2 = July 2020). Between the first and second surveys there was a worsening in satisfaction with government support, while support for families remained constant and that of friends recorded a slight increase. Feeling supported by different social spheres is closely correlated with an optimistic vision of the future (scale of positivity) and with the belief that individuals and families can contribute to social change (believing you can make a difference). The results confirmed the hypothesis that different types of social support are essential for emerging from the Covid-19 crisis in a subsidiary and collaborative perspective.
