Abstract

Our research aims to investigate the relationship between the young elderly (65–74 years old) and use of technologies [1], and to explore active ageing and the role played by media and ICTs in building a friendly and positively domestic environment for the elderly in their everyday life [2]. Hence the use of ICTs by the elderly takes into account two different perspectives: (1) Generational approach: the young elderly are here considered by looking at the role played by their generational identity in shaping their media use [3]. (2) Domestication and Leisure: Media consumption is spatially and temporally located and media uses and routines are shared within the household and are enabled by processes of domestication [4]. The project is based on an theoretical study about ageing, a preliminary survey with a representative sample of the Italian “young elderlies” regarding ICTs equipment and usage (N = 900), (3) 20 family in-depth interviews in Milan area.
