This website is a living document of our worldwide research into the lives of elderly. In October 2017 there was an International Festival on Elderly in The Netherlands, accompanied by the publication of our book and documentary. Currently we are promoting our Istitute Aetatis.
Dona Clelia is 80 years old, and lives in the centre of Sao Paulo for 30 years. She repeats 30 times a day that she is a politician. She used to be a teacher, and now she spents most of her time going to hospitals and watching soap opera’s.
