The article explores the relationship between becoming a grandmother and retiring
in Italy. In contrast to the US and other countries in Europe, the two events do not
overlap in Italy, and the former hardly influences the latter. Francesca Zanasi and
Inge Sieben interpret the findings in relation to the familistic structure of Italy.
