Federighi, Paolo; And Others
Nine adult education programs being conducted in Italy are described in the case studies in this packet.

The following programs are profiled: (1) public and library--a plan for the education of adults (Federighi); (2) creation of an adult education system in the Molise region (Susi); (3) Center for Continuing Education in the Veneto region (Filippi); (4) education for adults in the earthquake region of Basilicata (Susi); (5) adult education in Bologna (Ricci); (6) adult education for the city of Prato (De Santis); (7) provincial administration of Modena (Tori); (8) University of the Third Age--Orvieto (del Corno); and (9) mass media and adult education in Sardinia (Fabio). Most program descriptions are overviews of the programs being conducted in the regions, with information on budget, population served, and types of courses offered. (In addition to the case description, this document includes information on the World Perspective case study project, indexes of all cases by country and by category, and guidelines for contributors.)
