Catholic Educational Publishing between the Two Wars: The Case of the Publishers SEI of Turin and La Scuola of Brescia
Sani, Roberto
Online Submission, History of Education & Children's Literature v4 n1 p231-242 2009
Only at the beginning of the Twentieth century, a confessional type of publishing, directed mainly at schools and teachers and devoted, almost exclusively, to publishing textbooks for every level and type of school, came into existence in Italy. In the period between the two World Wars and especially after the Gentile Reform (1923), this type of publishing consolidated, developed and overcame its local dimension and, with the modernizing of the printing process, eventually penetrated educational reality at a national level. The origins and the development of the Catholic educational publishers La Scuola in Brescia and Societa Editrice Internazionale (SEI) in Turin are explored, from their beginning in the early 20th century up until the fascist regime. Their production, which was especially aimed at providing the youth with "good publishings" as well as offering tools for school education and updating teachers, is retraced following the events and figures of the national Italian history. (Contains 48 footnotes.) ["History of Education & Children's Literature" is published by the University Press EUM (University of Macerata, Italy).]
