L'invecchiamento in una prospettiva sistemica ABSTRACT: Although again is usually defined as a biological involution, the systemic view allows u sto reach a more acute understanding of this complex phenomennon that i characterized by the inversion of transgenerational complementarities. We propose here a description of various major aspects concerning the incidence of gender and culture on aging, and the role of old people in various types of families. We also describe the mutual influences existing between elderly and family organi- sation and mythology. After a brief discussion on the major features of old age as stage of the family life cycle, we move to some psychopathological difficulties and underline their relational aspects. Key Words: Aging, Generational Role, Post-Modern Family
