The focus of this monographic issue, within the context of PRIN 2017 "Education and development in southern Italy (1861-1914)", aims to update the historiographical discussion on key aspects of the evolution of education and training in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and to study the problems that the “Mezzogiorno” faced especially with regard to the formation of human capital.</p> 2022-06-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Fabio Pruneri, Stefano Lentini, Brunella Serpe, Caterina Sindoni The «tortuous path» of literacy in post-unitary Sardinia.

School Inspector Giovanni Scrivante (1861-1864) 2022-07-20T13:26:45+00:00 Manuela Garau <p class="p1">The essay reconstructs the state of primary education in the province of Cagliari, including, the districts of Oristano, Iglesias, Lanusei and the capital, in the aftermath of the Unification of Italy. The analysis starts from the years 1861-1864, through a comparison with primary education statistics in the school year 1853-1854, when the Island was still part of the Regnum Sardiniae, exactly one lustre before the approval of the Casati Law. This comparison, in the largest and most populous province of Sardinia (13,415.22 sq. km. and 372,097 inhabitants at the 1861 census), is made through the study, re-presentation and re-elaboration of the statistical summaries presented and published by the Timon Typography of Cagliari in 1864 at the behest of the Royal School Inspector ff. di Provveditore, Giovanni Scrivante, who made use not only of his work for the years 1863 and 1864, but also of the work on the initiation and dissemination of elementary schools, carried out by his predecessor, Cav. Alberto De Gioannis, in the two-year period 1861-1862. The article addresses the status and diffusion of public and private elementary schools for both boys and girls, as well as mixed schools and evening and holiday schools for adults.</p> <p>The essay reconstructs the state of primary education in the province of Cagliari, in the aftermath of the Unification of Italy.

The 1864 survey 2022-07-20T13:10:49+00:00 Domenico Francesco Antonio Elia <p class="p1">This paper presents an analysis of gyms and gymnastics teachers in Southern Italy in the 1860s based on the survey conducted by the Ministry of education in 1864. On the background of national and international literature, the research aims to explore the gyms’ material conditions and the forms of teachers’ education and training. It argues that both poor equipment and low-level training affected the teaching practices of the first generation of gymnastics teachers. The paper contributes to a better understanding of regional and local features of the process of nation-building after the Unification (D’Ascenzo 2013).</p> 2022-06-08T14:54:11+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Domenico Francesco Antonio Elia Open Competitive Exams for Teachers in Oristano between Competence Conflicts and Candidate Evaluation (1866-1913) 2022-07-20T13:12:02+00:00 Federico Piseri <p class="p1">The article aims to analyze the recruitment practices for the election of the elementary teachers in Oristano between 1866 and 1913. The research is based on a large documentary investigation that started from f the Municipal and State Archives of Oristano in a first stage, and then continued in the State Archives of Cagliari and Sassari to deepen the careers of the teachers involved. The recruitment sessions held after 1908 are the real focus of the article. These are the subject of numerous appeals that highlight the dynamics of the relationship, often conflictual, between the teachers, the municipality and the institutions ruling the school in a period when, in Italy, is discussed the transition of the primary school administration from the municipalities to the State. What is observed in such a local and decentralized reality, then, finds its confirmation also in the wider national debate.</p> 2022-06-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Federico Piseri Radiography of an educational institution: the Normal School of Cosenza from birth to the Great War 2022-07-20T13:11:18+00:00 Nicola Trebisacce <p class="p1">The article reconstructs the history of the Scuola Normale of Cosenza from its birth, after the constitution of the Kingdom of Italy, until the eve of the Great War. In more than half a century the School, despite its logistical, economic and organizational difficulties, has played an important role in the training of teachers who have contributed to the dissemination of education and the growth, not free from contradictions and limits, of Calabrian and Southern society.</p> 2022-06-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Nicola Trebisacce The beginnings of the “Bernardino Telesio” high school and the promotion of the modernisation process in the province of Cosenza area (1861-1865). Keys to reading the archive documents 2022-07-20T13:27:43+00:00 Fabio Stizzo <p class="p1">Following 1861, the Cosenza High School became a point of reference in the province for an entire generation of young people. The priority task of this institution, which boasted a solid and interesting tradition, was to promote teaching of classical studies and literature but, being able to count on the value of personalities of certain importance among teachers such as the presbyter Vincenzo Padula, founder of “Il Bruzio, Political-Literary Newspaper”, and Vincenzo Dorsa, a well-known scholar of Arbereshe origin, requests for modernization and social and cultural growth came out of the classrooms and involved the entire social context. In the light of the most accredited methodological achievements from the research sector, the contribution takes into consideration some documents that are part of the “Heritage” of the Library of the Bernardino Telesio Classical High School and the 115 issues of “Il Bruzio, Political-Literary Newspaper”, kept at the Civic Library of Cosenza, which offer many ideas for investigating the social and cultural impact of the institution on the territory.</p> 2022-06-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Fabio Stizzo “Francesca Capece” Gymnasium High School in Maglie: didactics, examinations, merits and demerits of the students.

The birth of the Institute was sanctioned by Royal Decree no. 2094 of 20 January 1851 which authorised ‘the establishment of a Jesuit House in the municipality of Maglie for the education and instruction of youth’ (Royal Decree of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies no. 2094 of 20 January 1851).<span class="Apple-converted-space">&nbsp;</span></span></p> 2022-06-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Anna Maria Colaci Go home Erpinotto! Propagandistic booklets reserved for young people and children in the Italy of the Marshall Plan 2022-07-20T13:12:11+00:00 Monica Dati <p class="p1">The article deals with the cultural propaganda programme implemented by the United States in Italy during the years of the Marshall Plan, with particular attention to publications and brochures aimed at young people, children and students, who were considered a target group for the objectives of Usis (United States Information Service) and the Information Division of the Eca (Economic Cooperation Administration). Taking into consideration the contents of atlases, comics, games and shows envisaged by the American mission and by operation “Bambi”, the research highlights the messages of growth, modernisation and productivity that were typical of the <em>American way of life</em>, also highlighting how much the economic development and aid programme for the populations was an integral part of the American policy of containing and fighting Communism.</p> 2022-06-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Monica Dati P.
