Educare il bambino alla vita interiore. La lezione di Maria Montessori nel tempo della post-democrazia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Maria Montessori’s pedagogy of interiority carried out in the “Houses of Children” is relevant to the postmodern age. By focusing on the care of the child’s inner life, Montessori’s lesson offers the new generations authentic religious practices, thus responding to the new, increasingly widespread, need for sacred. On this wake, contemporary pedagogy is re-launching childhood as a new resource for the adult, endeavouring to transform the environments where education takes place into laboratories of peace and democracy.
