The following article presents a project proposal that involves three countries, Eritrea, Palestine and Italy, as well as the place of which the school interested in participating in the project is situated in. In an attempt to create a pathway to peace education, the project wants to raise awareness about the stories of different migrant minors in Italy, and the geo-historical aspects of their countries of residence or origin. This will be achieved by the examination of historical events through literature, filmography, direct testimonials and other materials collected on the field. Furthermore, the law, such as the Declaration of Children's Rights of 1989, and the Italian Constitution of 1948, and current statistical reports, including the local ones, will be considered. Last but not least, comments and suggestions from all of those who participate in the research project, not to mention the students themselves, will be taken into account.

Triggered by the social transformations, mainly caused by the recent migrations, and as a result of the new legislation (Presidential Decree no. 263/2012) that recently came into force, the role of adult education in Italy is in an enormous change. This is especially the case of the Provincial Centres for Adult Instruction (CPIA) in Sicily, which nowadays are providing an educational reception system to the migrants, mainly teenagers and young adults, who have succeeded in crossing the Mediterranean Sea. In this light, the CPIAs have a great potential to become a major educational workshop centre where their results and best practices could be shared and taken as example and followed by other school sectors. The following text will deal with three questions that are common to many educational settings, but which in particular apply to the Sicilian one, namely: How is one to work with a group of students who vastly differs from one another? How is one to overcome ethnocentrism? How is one to encompass the concept of «citizenship quotient»? In order to highlight this still little known public education system, the theoretical part will turn to some short stories of the daily life in a school for adults, located at the South border of Europe.

Multiculturalità nel quotidiano

Teatro in carcere – Theatre in Prison

The author, teacher of the Dozza prison, describes her experience of theater in the prison of Bologna, through a pedagogical reflection on the meaning of rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners into society.

The international migration of women is posing multiple challenges to the care systems of their country of origin, involving in particular the families of the female migrant workers who are left at home. Based on an exploratory multi-located research conducted in Italy, Romania and the Republic of Moldova, the article explores the occurring correlation between the newly achieved professional identities of the parents, within Moldovan and Romanian families that have become transnational through the phenomenon of female emigration. The author analyses on the one hand the transit from Italy to the country of origin implemented by the female migrants, and on the other the labour of reproduction fulfilled by their husbands. The main findings show how female mobility is strongly influenced by numerous structural and normative factors, and how the husbands of the women usually struggle to manage their new role within the family by having to face the expectations of their social context and the desires of their children.

We will ask some questions departing from food. Can we become multicultural thanks to multicultural food? How long will it take? Meanwhile, it would not be wrong to keep our table manners and wish each other bon appetite.
