Abstract

This article presents the main findings of a survey carried out as part of a large national research project focused on active ageing, which surveyed 900 Italian people aged between 65 and 74. Our research examines the socio-demographic characteristics of young-old Italian Internet users and the factors related to their use of ICTs. Results show that there is a strong digital divide among Italian young elders, which is primarily influenced ‒ in terms of classical divide dynamics ‒ by differences in economic, social and cultural capital. With regard to the theme of active ageing, highly digitalized young elders are generally characterized by good health and low index of perceived ageing, but at the present stage of this research it is not possible to indicate whether the adoption of ICTs is an actual factor of social inclusion and participation.
