The paper deals with the modelling of the COVID-19 spread among people with different age. The model introduced is a simplified version of a full age based one where the division into age based groups of the population is performed only for distinguishing the initial contagion step. An identification procedure is performed on the basis of the data acquired for the Italian case showing that the model can describe and explain the actual differences between the different aged individuals with respect to the possibility to acquire the virus.
