Abstract: El rápido aumento de las expectativas de vida es un fenómeno típico del mundo desarrollado. El envejecimiento ha sido considerado una simple espera a la muerte por mucho tiempo. Así, hoy más que nunca, es extremadamente importante reflexionar sobre la posibilidad de aumentar la calidad de vida de los ancianos. En el marco sistémico-ecológico, es una cuestión muy importante cómo cambiar las representaciones sociales sobre los ancianos y hacer significativos los años de la vejez. Según una diseñada escenografía, vamos a llevar a cabo una investigación, articulada en dos estudios: el primero se lleva a cabo involucrando a un grupo de ancianos y un grupo de jóvenes; el segundo se realiza con el fin de hacer comparaciones transnacionales entre Italia y España. Vamos a utilizar un cuestionario psicosocial, que incluye las siguientes medidas: un conjunto de temas relativos al modelo de resistencia al cambio y a las actividades que un anciano realiza durante el día; las asociaciones libres; la programación de Afecto Positivo y Negativo; La Escala temporal de satisfacción con la vida; WHO-QoL-Bref; la autoeficacia social percibida. Los resultados de nuestra investigación contribuirán a un conocimiento mejor y más articulado con respecto a los ancianos y a sus vidas.The quick increase of life expectations is a typical phenomenon of developed world. The aging has been considered simply waiting period of the death for long time. Thus, today more never, it becomes extremely important to reflect upon possibility increasing the quality of life among elders. In ecological-systemic framework, one question extremely important is how to change social representations on elders and make meaningful the years of the old age. According to designed scenery, we are going to carry out a research, which is going to be articulated in two studies: the first is going to carry out involving one group of elders and one group of young people; the second is going to carry out to make cross-national comparisons between Italy and Spain. We are going to use a psychosocial questionnaire, which includes the following measures: a set of items regarding to model of resistance to change and the activities which an elder usually does during the day; free associations; Positive and Negative Affect Schedule; Temporal Satisfaction With Life Scale; WHO-QoL-Bref; Perceived Social Self-efficacy.
