Geography’s preeminence: Italian Commission for the Knowledge and Study of Geography at School
AbstractSince on 30 March 2022, by Decree of the Minister Prof. Patrizio Bianchi, the “Commission for the knowledge and study of geography at school” in Italy was established at the Ministry for Education, with an act which owing to its institutional importance not only boasts very few precedents in the history of the relations between Geography (understood as a community of scholars and teachers) and the Institutions called upon to foster and guarantee its teaching, but having the clear political meaning for the goals of such provision and for the moment in time in which it is implemented. Its institutional importance derives in concrete terms at historical level, not only therefore at an ideal one, from the premises according to which both Minister and Ministry deemed it is necessary to grant the request for the establishment of the Commission proposed by the Italian Association of Geography Teachers, backed by all the main scientific and cultural Associations of the sector.
