This study is developed within Vern L. Bengtson’s theoretical framework: the western modernization process causes changes to the family’s nuclear structure. One of these changes is the rise of vulnerability concerning two generations, the oldest and the youngest ones, which results in increased intergenerational dependency. This paper aims to determine whether this theoretical approach applies to Italy’s current scenarios. A secondary analysis was carried out on several indicators, including measures of vulnerability and intergenerational dependency. Effects of growing interdependence on the distribution of workload in families will be discussed. The data considered supports the validity of Bengtson’s theory.
