This contribution focuses on a topic that has been rather neglected by studies and sociological research: the intergenerational transmission of wealth. The purpose is to illustrate i. the institutional, regulatory, economic and  demographic features that characterize the context of the succession; ii. the existing relationships between these characteristics and individual decisions regarding inheritance; iii. the emerging social effects. Particular attention has  been paid to Italy where some contextual conditions, for a long time overall favourable to hereditary transmission, are changing and, with them, are changing the actions implemented by the subjects and the general consequences  arising.
