La religione come risorsa discorsiva nell'esperienza di invecchiamento - The cultural and discursive approach to aging studies suggests on one side that it’s impossible to identify universal evolutive pathways, because of the build-up of different experiences that make every person the only one; on the other side, that it’s necessary turning to a dialogical perspective, so that the different voices about aging experience can find their appropriate place. In order to regain a neglected dimension - not only in gerontology - having important potentials for subjective well-being, our purpose is to deepen the way religion can be a resource of meaning in the course of life. From narrative interview with Catholic and converted to Buddhism aged people, it emerges the strength of individual discursive positioning: both in constant evolutive pathways and in switch-marked life experiences, religious believers can find in different religious believes and practices the answers to essential questions about their life, an anchor to face the present and the future, a "social escort" for their well-being.
