Our research aims to investigate the relationship between the young elderly (65â74 years old) and use of technologies , 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 . 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 . (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 . The project is based on an theoretical study about ageing, a preliminary survey with a representative sample of the Italian âyoung elderliesâ regarding ICTs equipment and usage (N = 900), (3) 20 family in-depth interviews in Milan area.
