Italian Signposts for a Sociologically and Critically Engaged Pedagogy. Don Lorenzo Milani (1923-1967) and the Schools of San Donato and Barbiana Revisited
Mayo, Peter
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v36 n6 p853-870 2015
This paper provides a critical exposition and analysis of the work of an acclaimed Italian educator, Lorenzo Milani, and ideas that emerged from his experiences in two Tuscan localities. His work is well known in Italy and many parts of southern Europe. Despite the translations of his works into English and Spanish, in the early 1970s, and their use in sociology of education classes in the United Kingdom, he seems to have had a very limited impact on the Anglo-North American-dominated critical education field. The paper revisits his ideas, in this 90th anniversary year, indicating their contemporary relevance and the signposts they provide for a critically and sociologically engaged pedagogy.
