Abstract

Active ageing is the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and se- curity in order to enhance quality of life as people age (WHO 2002). This article aims at describing the diverse interventions that different actors implemented in a city of Northern Italy for (partially) self-sufficient people aged 65 or over, in order to recognize the different reasonings that oriented them, with reference to the active ageing paradigm. To this aim we conducted semi-structured inter- views with representatives of public bodies and third sector associations who offer services for the elderlies. The analysis focused on the risks of exclusion and stigmatization of those who cannot or will not align to the model of active ageing, and the role of this paradigm in increasing those risks.
