Old, crazy and rebellious. The pleasure of life in the third age

"Old, crazy and rebel" says without knowing a protagonist of today's Italy: the elderly. In contrast to what is believed, it is not a world of weak, with the only goal of going to the Creator. First of all, taste for life has not abandoned them. They refuse to surrender and consider old age an incurable disease. They count a lot in a country like ours where their number is continuously growing. In the political choices they are decisive, it was seen in Britain in the referendum if it comes out of no from Europe. The market cuddles them because they decide the success or misfortune of a product. Yet they never discusses. I understood the reason when I turned eighty. Old age still feels away. And almost nobody wants to take care of it. I tried to do it with this book for me unusual and partly autobiographical. Describes the third age in its strength, but also in the problems that afflict it: loneliness, the fear of poverty, the terror of getting sick, the anguish of being robbed even by his own bank, up to the robus of the relationship between males and females . Love is an infallible test of vitality and desire to stay young. For men, it confirms the growing use of a miraculous remedy, Viagra. While in women the rejection of old age drives to hide age, thanks to the cheeky dress and body care.
