As in the rest of Europe, the demographic crisis and the ageing process are changing the population structure of Milan. These phenomena put under pressure the local welfare system, the functioning of the labour market, the solidarity between generations within and outside the family. Without indulging in pessimism or falling into clichés, the volume investigates the urgent challenges that Milan should face: activation of mature peoples, promotion of youth employment, long term care for frail elderly people, supporting families and individuals over the life course. Then the volume discusses the opportunities that lie ahead the demographic transition if the relationships among generations are redefined in terms of equity and interdependence.
