In old age, the most frequently-occurring conditions that involve psychic suffering and that often acquire psychopathological connotations are maladjustment, anxieties and fears, depression and cognitive decline. These are existential and clinical areas that Professor Marcello Cesa-Bianchi has dealt with many times inhis long scientific career. His early works include in particular the maladjustment of the elderly detected and analysed in different experiential contexts.Whereas anxieties, fears and depression – in addition to maladjustment – also occur in other periods of life, in old age they acquire specific characteristics. Furthermore, the ageing process involves the risk of the onset of dementia, in its various forms. Cognitive decline – without of course ignoring its clinical manifestations and still unknown etiology – is considered in its multidimensionality and hypercomplexity, highlighting above all the emotional, relational and creative dynamics.
