L'attivismo e la figura di Giuseppina Pizzigoni. Riletture critiche

  • Olga Rossi Cassottana


The “Rinnovata school” was founded by Giuseppina Pizzigoni in the Milanese suburb of Ghisolfa in 1911. It is now in the centre of the city. It was considered by renowned critics as the most significant and tangible example of “active school” in Italy at primary level, offering, however, apt continuity both for vocational  and professional courses and nursery school. The Pizzigoni method, defined “experimental” and resulting from personal experience, made the pupil the true protagonist of learning and acquisition of skills in every teaching situation and educational circumstance.
