Healthy Ageing. The experience of the Ferrero Foundation

Our health is something we create: it is not a state, but rather the result of a dynamic of self-actualization, which also depends on the presence of others. The Foundation sees successful ageing as an ensemble of activities, attitudes, ways of being and relationships. Our mental capacities, as well as our creative and recreative activities and social relations are key elements which influence our well-being. The Foundation promotes the idea of experiencing ageing as an occasion to discover new opportunities in a time of prosperity which valorises the elderly. With these prerequisites, the Foundation has organized biennial international scientific conventions dedicated to successful ageing and topics related to old age since 2013.

Healthy Ageing Week 2021
From 8 to 13 November, the Ferrero Foundation of Alba will host a series of events dedicated to healthy ageing in the occasion of the fifth international scientific convention "Successful ageing 2021: strength and vulnerability of the elderly", organized by the Ferrero Foundation in collaboration with the Academy of Medicine in Turin, the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan and the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.
