The volume deals with the relevance of the pedagogical message of the 'Florentine school' created around the teaching of Codignola and Borghi and around the magazine Scuola e Città (“School and City”) in the 1950s, inspired by a critical-rational, secular and progressive pedagogy, inspired to the Dewey’s thinking, almost sixty-five years later. We live in a historical-cultural and socio-economic-political era profoundly different from the post-war society of the 1950s. Ours is a time where democracy, secularism and progress are sub judice, a time which outlines brand-new horizons (in knowledge, communication, production, culture, etc.). We live in a time where we face a model that has grown and faded over the course of several decades, but which today is still very current and relevant.
