The so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution influences and interacts in a reciprocal relationship with the social sphere, posing the question of how to ensure that it does not irrevocably benefit a part of society, but as many individuals as possible. Since the current technological change takes place in a context in which the labor market is aging rapidly, it becomes imperative to understand whether the "innovation skills" belong exclusively to young workers, while a lack of them endemically afflicts mature workers. The reflections proposed move from the intention of correlating some ideas of a purely socio-economic nature to a broader analytical view, in-cluding, thanks to different interpretative references, the problem of mature workers in Indus-try 4.0 in prejudicial perceptions and culturally rooted stereotypic visions, noting in conclusion how is urgent a change of narrative.

Keywords: stereotype; collective imaginary; industry 4.0; mature workers; active aging; inter-generational conflict.
