[Autom. eng. transl.] The progressive aging of the population has made the transition to old age a particularly significant and critical step in the family life cycle, as well as a "joint venture", which involves all the generations present in the family. Ilvolume shows the results of an interesting empirical research - promoted by the Gerontological Prevention Space of the Center for Problems of the Elder in Mantua and conducted by a team of the Department of Sociology of the Catholic University directed by Giovanna Rossi - on a sample of subjects aged between 50 and 60, residing in Mantua and the immediate surroundings. More precisely, the investigation has deepened the meaning of this passage by highlighting whether and how mature adults prefigure their own old age and prepare themselves to become elderly.
