This article concerns the lessons that Aldo Capitini dedicated to the Montessori Method, in Pisa University (1948-49) and in Cagliari University (1959-60). Beyond the common opinion that interprets the two theories of education as similar, the criticism that Capitini did to Maria Montessori was intended to clarify his education theory of the co-presence. Sympathizing with the neo-idealistic and secular critiques, Capitini denounced the limits of the Montessori proposal regarding some subjects: scientific pedagogy, method, didactic material, liberation of the child, religion, peace. Reading the summaries of the two university courses, the presence of two Capitinian Montessori emerges, even if the continuities are more than differences between the two interpretations.
