Italy is a fascinating mixture of the old and the new. On the one hand are its centuries of tradition, and on the other, parts of Italy which would almost qualify as underdeveloped areas. This study on Italy presents aspects of the current educational situation against the background of Italian educational history. Part I, A Survey of Italian Education History, traces changes in education from the Napoleonic invasions to the post-World War II era. Part II, Italian Education Today, describes school administration, organization and structure; teacher education; and higher education, including university administration. Part III, Current Issues, Problems, and Trends, identifies and explains: (1) The Latin Question; (2) The Gonella Plan for Educational Reform; (3) The Fanfani 10-Year Plan; (4) Educational Television; and (5) Recurrent Educational Problems. The bulletin includes a bibliography of primary, general, and periodical sources, and a glossary of Italian educational terms. Appended are the Educational Provisions of Italian Constitution of 1947, and a list of Italian institutions of higher learning and their faculties. (Contains 16 footnotes.)
