In today’s society, characterized by complexity and precariousness, elderly people represent a crucial resource for preserving the memories of humanity and passing them on to future generations. Through a focus group technique, this study aims to explore the main topics related to memories of past and present places in the lives of a group of 27 elderly people (2 men and 25 women) born between 1916 and 1940 living in the Piedmont Region, and to investigate the possible links between sense of identity sense and attachment to these places. Five main categories were identified through textual analysis with ALCESTE software: Past traditions linked to specific places, Changes in habits and immigration, Places where they have lived and places tied to their personal memories, Comparisons between the places of yesterday and today, The value of memory for the younger generations. For the elderly, recounting the memories of their life seems to be related to a present self and past self which are closely linked to an attachment to the places which have defined their individual identity.
