[Autom. eng. transl.] Family and work are inherent in the activities of man, of his life, of his history, so much so that the complex link existing between these two areas is the object of reflection in different disciplines, even very distant from each other. Narrowing the field of our interest to the psychological aspects of this intertwining we would like to start from Freud's well-known affirmation that a person's psychological identity depends on his ability to love and work. The psychosocial perspective completes this reading, exploring how the intertwining of family and work is played out within the processes of building people's identity and analyzing the social components that make this intertwining cumbersome or fluid. In this chapter we will present in the first part the main theories and researches of psychosocial literature that have examined the link between family and work. In the second part, the data of two studies conducted by the University Center for Family Studies and Research on the topic will be presented, which highlight some important points for understanding the intertwining of family and work.
