The contribution tries to outline a certain way of thinking about the prospect of active aging and that of the topic of lifelong learning with particular regard to the elderly as well as connecting the two sets of considerations. For the first aspect, the interpretive hypothesis is centered on the concept of "lifelong learning" in an attempt to show that the "discourse" of active participating members of issues is part of our entire existential vicissitude, for the second, the reference consists of the setting of training activities that can variously be said as interactive, experiential and narrative workshops. Behind both cases, there is the so-called "capabilities approach", according to which, it is believed the connection of the two arguments can be explored through their underlying reasons and most significant implications.
